HP Photosmart 2575 printer driver install issue.

I've been trying to install a HP Photosmart 2575 printer via USB connection. I don't have the CD so I decided  to download the drivers off the HP website. After downloading the driver and trying to install it, I keep getting the following error message that I have attached. After this, I hit OK and then it seems like it's going to install and then all of a sudden, this Windows countdown pops up and the computer automatically shuts down after 60 seconds. What do I need to do so I can get this all-in-one printer installed?.

Download and run the HP removal tool.

Download and install the driver/software again. If you initially tried the full software install then this time install the HP Photosmart Basic Print and Scan Driver.

Use a different USB port, and ensure you uninstall and reinstall WITHOUT the device attached until advised.
