It appears that one of our users has an HP LaserJet1200 installed so they can print from home, however, somthing is causing the process to be re-launched over and over w/o ever killing itself.
Each one of these processes is using over 4MB of RAM!!!
Please help. How can I disable this app?

the remote office and remote users all have HP printers.
The HPBOID.EXE is not terminating on the TS.
I am planning on shutting down the HPBOID.EXE service in SERVICES and the remooving all instances of this file in Task Manager. Reboot the server and get the remote users to print again.
I would like more info on this before I go this route.

"I've had this problem many times, on variuos servers. what I do is: Download the latest driver for you printer.
Uninstall all versions of the installed driver.
Stop the spooler service, and search your harddrive for any hpboid.exe/dll and hpbpro.exe/dll files and delete them.
Restart the spooler service.
Unzip the new printer drivers, and edit the .inf file, removing ALL lines referring to the above files.
Install the new drivers.
(will complained about not being a microsoft signed driver, just ignore).
Should be fine."
But does it work on a terminal server related issue

Search for the file and rename it, add 1 in the begining or in the end. It will never pop up again in the task manager.
Let me know if that resolves the issue..

pskill \\hostname -u hostname\Administrator -p password HPBOID
psinfo \\hostname -u hostname\Administrator -p password HPBPRO
Get this pskill from PSTool on Technet or go directly to http://www.sysinternals.com and you will be redirected - Microsoft bought it.
Then go find the driver in msconfig and remove it, removing all instanced of the driver from the drive as well (say no to the reboot). Open Regedit to the HKLM/software/Microsoft/Windows/Current_Version/Ru
