This uninstaller utility will remove the HP all-in-one software from your computer even if the normal software uninstaller will not. Use this utility if you cannot uninstall the all-in-one software or cannot get it reinstalled successfully.

The entries for the all-in-one will be removed from the Windows Registry. HP advises owners using Windows Me and XP to make a System Restore point prior to running this utility and another after it has been run. Click Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and then System Restore to run System Restore.

This utility will completely remove all software for the following products:

  • OfficeJet 4100 series
  • OfficeJet 6100 series
  • PSC 1000 series
  • PSC 1100 series
  • PSC 1200 series
  • PSC 2100 series
  • PSC 2200 series

If you cannot uninstall your software using the Uninstaller located in Menu --> Hewlett-Packard --> (...), this utility will remove the software from a previous installation and allow you to reinstall the software from the software CD-ROM for your all-in-one.

Be aware, if you have other HP All-in-one, Deskjet or Photosmart printers or HP ScanJet scanners and Photosmart camera software connected and installed on the your computer, this utility may also remove components of those products and require you to reinstall the software included with those products. Before running this utility, uninstall the software for these products.

Note: If you are going to install an HP Photosmart 120, 320, 620, 720, 810, or 850 digital cameras, this software should be installed prior to reinstalling the HP all-in-one software or an error will occur while installing the camera software.

HP Laserjet printers and other HP equipment connected to your PC will NOT be affected by this utility.
