I'm looking at restore points, and found that there are multiple points created by "Printer Driver HP Officejet J4500 Series fax Installed" at every system start-up. The printer is not attached. The computer belongs to an aquaintance, and I've done some unrelated clean-up.

Like so:

I'm guessing here, but I bet you used the printer and then disconnected it, and it needed one more reboot to finish installation and because the printer isnt attatched its failing the last install step. Connect the printer and try to reboot a few more times and see if it persists.

If you still have the problem, you can use the HP Officejet Software and Driver Removal Utility to remove the offending driver and software off your computer completely.

Thank you for your prompt reply.
The printer is not here. When I return the computer to its owner, I'll likely reinstall the printer software and evaluate further. Results will be posted here.

Yes, but it only operates from the software dialog. The printer LCD indicates non-communication to the computer if scanning is attempted by the buttons on the printer.

I've now returned the computer to its user, reloaded the HP software, and the concern is still duplicated (excessive system restore points created). It appears that the HP Officejet Software and Driver Removal Utility will be needed to try next. It seems like a lot of hassle to get a printer and a computer to communicate.

I'll try that next time I have a few hours. Details as they occur...
