You wouldn't want to run the disks anyway since they are for backup only. The correct method is to boot the Recovery partition to run Toshiba HDD Recovery Utility.

But instead I would run the vastly superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 - everything you need is in the blue link. At the step where you boot the WIn7 installation DVD or flash stick, you would want to delete all but the Recovery partition, create new partition to install.
Thank you for all of your help. Your suggestion has merit. I will have to consider it, which appears to be the best alternative, but seems to be quite an undertaking? I have not undertaken such a task on any computer previously.

You might be able to get by with only a Repair Install using the installer provided in Step 1 of Clean Reinstall tutorial. This keeps everything in place but reinstalls only the OS.

However some corrupt settings changes and tweaks may be passed back through when files, settings and programs are reloaded so it may not solve the problem. But it is worth a try.

However keep in mind that whatever you do short of the Clean Reinstall is swimming against a tide of lard which is throttling the best OS ever, so having a Clean Reinstall is actually better than buying a new PC.

Whatever you decide we are here to help you.

Seeker because you can use this HP program and printer on another Windows 7 computer it should work on this computer but doesn't.
Your use of Wise Cleaner (post #5)I believe has moved or removed things needed to allow you to install the HP programs on this computer.
In my opinion the best cure for this problem would be using Gregs method of a Clean Install. Install your HP printer and program. Install MSE. Never use Wise anything again.
Have a nice day.

Yes, I concur. Thw only way to) restore complete functionality of the printer and software is to follow the suggestion. Time availability is problematic!

You, also, have a great day! (In this part of North America it is snowing and freezing. Brr!)

Reboot and logon under Seath. Clear folder C:\Users\Seath\AppData\local\Temp as much as possible. So delete everything you can there. Try to install the driver. What's now in C:\Users\Seath\AppData\local\Temp ?

Install software is searching for 7zS63E in Temp folder. Have you any folder in Temp that starts with 7z (give me the exact name)? If so open that folder and its subfolders. Blocksysuserinstall.exe found there?
