I just installed and ran REGMON. The following keeps displaying over and over.

I do have a HP printer on LPT1 but I don't think this should be displaying this over and over in reg mon should it?

Just a guess, but my understanding of HP printer software leads me to believe you have HPAIO_PrintFolderMgr loading in your startup.  Here's a quote from my favorite startups list:

"Directly from HP: 'This process has one purpose - detects if the device moves to a different port, and notifies other processes to look on the new port.' For various HP all-in-one printer/scanner/copier devices. They print and copy fine with those files disabled, and the HP icon installed on the desktop that points to "hpodir07.exe" works just fine if you need to use the scanner"

You can check it out here if you like, but be warned that it's a VERY large page (currently 1.52MB).  Once it loads, hit Ctrl-F, type HPAIO_PrintFolderMgr, and hit Enter.

You can edit your startup by going to Start >> Run, type msconfig, and hit Enter.  Go to the Startup tab and uncheck anything you don't want to load at startup.  I've found that using the startups list is one of the best resources out there for cleaning junk out of your startup.  Good luck!

Did you find out if disabling HPAIO_PrintFolderMgr in the startup prevents regmon from reporting the printer port messages over and over?
