Hello everyone, I recently got a HP Pavilion Slimline, and it came with this program called HP Digital Imaging Monitor. It runs on startup, and just recently I've been trying to make the computer as clean as possible by removing unnecessary programs and processes that start on startup. I've looked at this HP Digital Imaging Monitor program many times, not knowing what it is, and whether or not I should remove it from the startup list. It takes up just a little bit of memory, but if it's unnecessary, then I would want to remove it from the startup list.

Could someone please explain to me what the HP Digital Imaging Montior process is, exactly? I just want to know what it does, and if there would be any bad side effects if I remove it from the startup list.

Thanks! :thumbsup:

Hehe, I'm still really confused here. Is this program just like something that lets you access the printer and camera wizards faster?

The only transfering program that I use for cameras is the Scanner and Camera Wizard, and nothing else. I don't have a printer attached. Would this program be needed?

It's a program that can be started manually, if you need to use it.
It's not necessary to have it running at startup.

I use it whenever I'm scanning. It's much better, IMHO, than MS's wizard. It also includes textbridge, I believe, which is something I don't often use.
