I've installed a great many printers over the years, and this is the first time I've ever had such a mess of bloatware (some of it borderline spyware) imposed on my computer by an installation disk. Should have used Custom Install. However, Typical Install for a new device - regardless of brand - has never before added Yahoo Toolbar to my Internet Explorer, and changed my Yahoo Mail chat preference! What has either to do with a printer, for heaven's sake? With that said, the printer works fine and its cartridges are reasonably priced. I do wish that it didn't insist on opening HP Solutions (annoying popup) every time I use it, and that HP Solutions didn't open itself again when I try to shut the printer off. If I uninstall that software, though, I lose my ink level monitoring capability. So off with the rest of the mess of bloatware that I could have avoided by using Custom Install, and leave that program in place for now.
