Failed install of driver for HP C4380 Windows 7

I have a HP printer C4380 which is fine on Windows XP. Need to install driver for Windows 7 and have tried 6 times using HP updated driver for Win7. Downloaded driver successfully in 45 minutes each time. During installation come up against same error each time. Cannot find specified file: C:\Users\Brian\AppData\local\Temp\7zS5E79\Setup\..\hp.

Reported to HP in error file and advised error corrected in returned file, but same error occurs in loading.

Any ideas please.

Hi Pebbly

Thanks for your suggestion.

I used the HP Instal-wizard each time.

I'm not that computer systems orientated. Would there be a Windows 7 wizard I could try as an alternative?
