It always displays once upon each boot/login.
I'd prefer to NEVER have to see it again.

I'd prefer they start-up, just don't want/need this notification. Is that truely the ONLY way?

Have you looked on the HP website for newer drivers and/or utility programs?

Maybe the message is caused by the FAX.
If you don't use FAX, look into disabling any HP FAX start-up programs and services.

You can check the printer software to see if there's a way to disable notifications.
If not, Msconfig is probably the best way to disable the notification.

Well, I took your advise and just disabled the HP startup "devices". It took care of the issue. I figure, when I DO use the printer, these programs should automatically start or prompt me for use. So, thanks for the ideas.
