Hi there,
trying to install printer driver onto my laptop at windows XP can't find it on its own. I first tried to download the driver directly from HP, but panda aborted it and said "a dangerous action" was trying to occur. so I eventually found the setup disk that came with the printer, and tried installing and got the same MSG but this time i found the dangerous action had somethign to with TDSS rootkit ??? any ideas of whats going on?? I just want to print from my laptop!!!!

It's a false detection by the Panda AV program.
You can safely choose the "Allow/Unblock/Ignore/Add to trusted" option(in the alert window) and let the installation finish.
