“Cannot delete hpwuSchd2.exe: Access Denied” when trying to delete HP folder from Program Files.

Delete in Safe Mode? Worked.

Run CCleaner — now it finds all sorts of missing DLL issues. Had to run it 4 times in a row before it actually fixed everything.

Restart into Regular mode.

Error on boot:
“Please wait while windows configures unload.”

Still says “HP Smart Web Printing (Already Installed)”

Tried this:
Manually uninstall HP Printer software
In case you cannot uninstall HP Printer software from your PC (Add/Remove Programs) you can search for .dat files in C:\Program Files\HP\ and then use the following command (with the appropriate modifications of course):

“C:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\{F38FA38A-7E5A-4209-88ED-4DE21CD20EEF}\setup\hpzscr01.exe” -datfile hposcr03.dat


What if I install Photosmart drivers and software first, then install the officejet?

Was able to successfully install D7400 Printer drivers and software. 🙂

I’m not sure why, but that was the problem. I was able to install the Officejet Printer just fine after first installing the photosmart printer, though Smart Web Printing still showed as already installed.
