  • i had the same problem start a few days ago...its a program switching to auto start....check your programs to see what was installed around the time you first experienced this problem.....for me it was a 'print projects' or 'print creations' program....uninstall it and the problem should go idid for me anyway


  • Uninstall HP Photo Creations.
