Use this utility when:
The USB driver installs part way, then the driver will not install. The Add New Hardware Wizard will not appear or one of the following conditions will occur.
After selecting Finish on the Add New Hardware Wizard during a USB install, the HP Printer Driver Installation screen fails to appear.
Plugging in the USB cable causes the Add New Hardware Wizard to appear on the screen briefly. The USB port driver loads, and the Printer Driver Installation screen fails to appear. There is no interaction required from the user in this scenario.
After printing successfully with the printer installed on the USB port and then uninstalling the printer driver, attempts to reinstall it fail.

Information:
The computer will not recognize the printer a second time (as described above) because during the first installation keys and folders are put into the computer's registry. The uninstaller on the installation CD will not delete these keys and folders that refer to the printer, therefore it appears to the computer that the printer is installed and will not allow it to be installed a second time. These printer entries in the registry need to be deleted. HP has developed an uninstaller utility that will delete all of the unnecessary printer references from the registry.
