I have a client with a P4 celeron 1.7 Ghz system running XP HOME.  All was fine with her 560C HP printer until I added service pack 1 and current updates to her computer last spring.  Every time the computer is restarted it finds new hardware, and does not like the printer driver.  I have updated the printer dirver with the same results.

She has since purchase a new HP printer, but every time she boots, it tries to re-install, does not like the driver.  Once past this pint the printer works just fine.

Any suggestions
