HP software hogs CPU Photosmart D7400 printer

As a reminder in case weird stuff starts happening:


fix (for Windows XP use) is to go into service management and stop anything with “HP” in the title and set startup type to manual. This bug looks to be pretty old.

As an aside, on Vista, it fails to find the printer. Have to reboot a few times before it “catches”.  What junk HP is making for software these days…
