hppusg.exe slowing system

My Task Manager shows the CPU pinned out at 100%, and the only process I can see operating is hppusg.exe, occupying 16,692k memory and CPU 95-99%.  Does anybody know what this process is, and why it never seems to stop?

I think my computer is slowed down significantly by this process.  Is it OK just to "End Process"?

It's nothing nasty, just an annoyance from HP
You can either disable it or rename it as it isn't essential
See this link on HP Forums for a fix

Are you 100% sure that hppusg.exe is the process slowing your computer?

Make sure you can see those HIDDEN processes eating up resources:
