It has been found that after installing certain HP Printers, the internet explorer would not access websites unless the address is prefixed by http:// which is not neccessary under normal conditions.
Also after removing the printer, there is no such problem.
ANY IDEAS?????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Thats an interesting occurrence. I see that there is some discussion on the HP Forums concerning disabling FTP on some of their printers. Perhaps this has something to do with it.

What model printer is this occurring in conjunction with?

Is hpslnmgr.exe one of your running processes?

If you are experiencing firewall alerts, this optional download utility will disable the HP Solution Manager (hpslnmgr.exe) on your computer, preventing any future calls to HP Servers for this program.


Maybe you should try that found here. These "phone home" programs are rarely neccessary and who knows what info is reported?

There is also a critical update for that printer that you can get here. That may help.

Thanks for the pains you took to pass the information to me. I really appreciate that and the problem was resolved using the update.

Hope you'll be here to take care of problems that may arise in future.

Great news asquare007. Wish they were all that easy and worked out that well.

If you have any more problems be sure to come back.
