e.g. "The hpbafd.ini file seems to be created by some HP printer drivers
when a user print a document". This is from:

The following page talks about a problem caused by this file:

The location of the file in the c:\windows folder is a bit suspicious in your case. Can you open the file with Notepad and see what it contains? Sometimes malware will use the same filename as legit files.

According to a web search, this file appears to be created when users logging in via a terminal server (or possibly other ways) print to certain HP printers.

Does this file get changed everytime a user logs in and or prints to the printer?

Yes, that is what I saw described on a web page. I don't have the exact link but can look it up again if you're interested.
