Such a disclosure normally would have sparked a huge scandal. However, the commencement of the [9/11] attack on the World Trade Center and The Pentagon the following morning would assure that the story remained buried.

I purchased a printer from HP in 2002. I installed the software and it seemed to be going fine. One week after installing the software, a popup came up asking me if I wanted to participate in HP's program and that no personal information will be sent from your computer to HP, just only information on how you use the product installed on your machine.

I clicked on the no button saying that I do not want to participate. I also searched my hard drive and installed programs thinking it was spyware. I was parenoid about it, but ok, I left the program alone back then.

Now in 2005, I installed it on my computer again after a good clean format, the HP share program popped up again.
I clicked on the no do not participate, and now my computer freezes up or crashes, giving me the blue screen of death. What is going on?
I will say, Windows and HP are embedding programs inside of their softwares to monitor what users are doing with their computers. I wrote an email to HP explaining that as long as I paid for the software and printer, it is no business what I am using it for. I was angry at my computer crashing constantly. This program, when I contacted hp about it, said that it only monitors if I print documents only or only pictures, they just want to know it's primary use. I explain to the customer service representative that I don't believe in spyware being installed and embedded in my operating system and printer software. If you want to know how I choose to use my machine, send a survey in the mail, see how quickly it ends up in my trashcan. clubinhand.gif

I've also had problems with my HP and spyware. No wonder the software and drivers are hundreds of megabytes in size!

I'm also not too happy about it having been deliberately crippled to disallow network printing. Won't be buying any more HPs.

That's understood Nightshade, however HP is unfortunately the best ones out there. I have experimented with Cannon, Epson, and Brother all ending with headaches a year later. This printer I have had since 2002 and when I restalled my computer's operating system, it "sneaks" me into that program. I am fed up with the software they force you to install with printer drivers. IMO it is none of HP's business how I use my printer, just pay and go home with your product. Not anymore.

Its so dangerous being connected to the internet sadoriginal.gif . Really if you want to be safe you need 2 computers, one on the internet that you don't use for anything serious, and one stand alone that is never on the internet for all your business stuff. You'd probably need to have separate printers for each computer too incase some kind of crossover thing happens with shared equipment. Too too scarey.

I hope that the banks don't keep closing down branches too because I would never use internet banking or credit card transactions.

Maybe you should try linux. It has open source drivers for most printers. As always with this open source stuff: do not buy the lastest, newest products, because it takes a while before the open source boys catch up... but there is a good reason for that:
-usually the drivers are made for printers (and other hardware) which are often used. If it is often used, that means it is usually better then the rest.
-the open source drivers do not contain the junk which normally come with the windows.

Since you people are so aware about this overloaded software-bulk programs, I suggest the try open-source.... There are the so called "live=cd's" out there, with linux on them which you can download and burn. If you boot from them, you can see and try linux working, which will be only installed in your computers RAM and leave your windows intact. Ofcourse a bit slower bcs it is not really installed, but good for a try. Then after you reboot without the cd, the pc was as before, with your XP or whatever.

I am running linux for 9 years now. for about 2.5 years with a firewall. I still have to get my first virus.... (and without virusscanner etc.)

rn.

I should probably add that my HP works beautifully with the open source drivers when I hook it up to my Gentoo box. And the drivers are tiny, I mean we're talking a difference of hundreds of megs for the windows drivers versus kilobytes for the linux drivers.

I spent WEEKS trying to get it to print over the network and wondering what I was doing wrong until I stumbled across the fact that this model of printer will only accept instructions from a system that it's physically hooked up to -- it had been receiving the instructions the whole time, damn thing was just saying "NO!"
