HI All

 

I just did a factory reset on my computer. Now I would like to get it to work the way I like but can't remember how. Every time I start the computer I get the Welcome Center and HP Total Care Advisor screens. I also get the side bar with gagets in it starting with the computer. How do I stop these from showing up every time? And one last thing. I installed my printer and now I get a message that my ink is low and I should align the printer every time I start the computer. How can I turn off these notifications?

 

System info is in my signature.

Download and run Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml). Uncheck any items you don't want to run at boot.

 

As for your printer, either replace the ink cartridges or turn it off until you want to use it (don't leave it on at boot).
