Using XP SP2.... This file puts the icon in your tray. You can still print and scan with your Office Jet after you kill this process. Once killed, hover the pointer over the tray icon, and it will disappear.
This process and others similar ( hpoevm08.exe, hpohmr08.exe etc ) usually indicate a problem with your HP all-in-one printer cartriges or a confused printer. Delete the processes & check printer.
