Is there any way to disable the anti-curl motor? The printer won't let me print in the Vphoto mode.........it automatically brings up the anti-curl motor error.

    The solution worked as suggested, but I had found another prior to using it. By removing the paper guide at the front of the printer, I was able to print my document. The downside was that the paper would clip the edge, so i had to sit at the printer and guide the paper by hand. your solution was MUCH better!........Thank you.

How do i get spyware off my computer? I keep being keylogged and am unsure how i have avg and norton scan daily could you please suggest a better anti spyware/malware


Although anti-spyware and anti-virus software are intended to protect your computer from advertisement pop-ups, slow performance and security threats, they can prevent some of your computer programs from running properly. This is especially true for anti-spyware software. This is why you may chose to disable them. If you disable either your anti-spyware and anti-virus software, take into consideration that you are making your computer more vulnerable to security threats like viruses, worms and trojan horses.
Disabling Anti-Spyware
  • 1Open the anti-spyware program on your computer. Sometimes there is an icon for the software located either on the desktop or in the toolbar on the lower right-hand corner of the computer, next to the clock. Double-click to open the software if it's on your desktop. Right-click on the icon if it's in the toolbar.
  • 2 Turn off the anti-spyware software by removing the check mark from the "on" button. If you have Ad-Watch Anti-Spyware, you will need to uncheck the word "active" and "automatic" to disable the software. If you are running SpyBot Tea Timer, click on "advanced mode" and then uncheck the teatimer.
  • 3 Click "yes" for the anti-spyware software to be disabled.

I am trying to install a hp deskjet F4140. When I install it I get the error: Fatal error MSI.Aiosoftware I get the error about the hpqcxs08.dll file. How do I fix this



First go to the following HP Support link and DOWNLOAD the up to date drivers for your operating system

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=3177566&lc=en&cc=uk&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=uk

Next you will need to close all programs on your PC. Also then disconnect from the internet to protect your PC during the next stage of this process. Then disable all Anti Virus, All Anti Malware and All Anti Spyware software. Then run the install application and follow the instructions carefully. This should be successful as it is known that many background programs / apps interfere with the install process. Then try printing and then reboot the PC and try printing again.

6310 Officejet all in one


Are you running AVG 8 free anti Virus? Did you install it recently? There are some reports that AVG 8 free version has some issues causing this to happen with VISTA. If so try printing with AVG turned off (Careful where you go on the internet while it is off - suggest a trusted site like microsoft)

Then try with AVG running and disable IE7 protected mode,

Click Tools, then click Internet Options.

  1. Click the Security tab.
  2. To disable Protected Mode uncheck the box next to Enable Protected Mode to disable it.
  3. Click OK.
Note: Enabling or disabling protected mode requires Internet Explorer to be restarted

If it is AVG causing the issue perhaps try and see if they have a later version available as it is not recommended to run with protected mode disabled

Print Problem error after 1/3 to 1/2 prints


This is not for changing carts, it's for the anti-curl function. You need to attach your printer to a computer, load the driver, try a test print from the computer, and check to see if the printer is reporting an Anti-curl motor error

Prints 1/3 to 1/2 a page then I get an error


Sounds like you have a problem with the anti-curl motor.

To confirm, you will need to print a test page from a computer that has the Alps drivers loaded (Not the drivers that Microsoft ship with XP, as the Alps drivers have a printer monitor that will inform you of any problems that the printer encounters, the Microsoft drivers do not). You can get them by joining the alps and alpsdecal groups at http://groups.yahoo.com. They are in the Files section of one of the groups.

Assuming you are using Alps drivers, and not the Microsoft drivers that are loaded by XP, you can disable the anti-curl function by the following process:

1. Click File->Print
2. Click the Properties button in the dialogue that opens.
3. Check the checkbox labelled "Print on backside" in the Media Type box of the properties dialogue.
