Darf nicht entfent werden weil es windows xp zugehört. Es läst sich deshalb auch nicht entfernen. Aber es befindet sich am falscher stelle. Es gehört nicht beim HP Printer-scanner installiert zu sein. HP-Dirigent lässt sich nicht öffnen dadurch. Beim ausschalten des pc's verzögert sich dieses.

Best practices for resolving hpohmr08 issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with hpohmr08. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
