New Hardware Wizard won't stop

  1. I have installed an HP LaserJet 3150 [Printer/Scanner/Fax].
    I used the CD-Rom which came with the unit. It set up and loaded fine, but now whenever I have to start up or reboot my computer, I get the pop up window that says: "Found New Hardware Wizard".
    It keeps telling me it has found new hardware and will install it for me!
    If I click on "cancel' it comes right back at least another 3 times!
    Is there a way to disable this program?
    Thank you, any advice would be appreciated.

    Is your problem fixed yet? As if the drivers are installed there is a known problem with printers/XP take a look here if this applies/helps

    Are you also still having a problem? Your issue doesn't revolve around a printer so not sure the KB posted above applies.. but if your problem continues please start a new thread as previously requested​
