Thanks for the post. I've included some steps below that should assist in removing all HP software from your system and consequently removing the update notifications. If you choose to reset the printing system be aware that it will remove all printers in your Print and Scan. If you have the software for your current printers installed, you can then simply re-add your current printer. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

- 2. On the screen where you select your product, press and hold the Ctrl, Opt, Apple keys (all 3 keys in the bottom left of your keyboard) while clicking uninstall. You should receive a warning message asking if you are sure you want to uninstall ALL HP Software.

Thanks for the info 4stix, the only thing is I can't do as you instructed, because having done a search and delete of all files labeled HP, I also unthinkingly removed the uninstaller. Is there a way I can either uninstall any remaining files manually, or else download just the uninstaller from somewhere?
Hello again Smiler*,
Sorry for the delay. No problem, Seventy One is correct. You can go out to HP.com and download the S/W and begin the uninstalll process. Good Luck!
