I have a Terminal Server, and for about a couple weeks now msiexec.exe is at 100% percent when people are remoted into the server. I also have this coming up in event viewer

Product: 32 Bit HP CIO Components Installer -- Configuration completed successfully.

It comes up over and over. I know it is an HP driver, but I dont have it installed locally. i know RDP brings the printers locally, but no software installed.

Anyone have any ideas?

That is a well known issue.  I answered this exact question almost 2 years ago on EE with the solution and unfortunately HP has removed the entire forum posting, with the solution, from their web site!  Also unfortunatey, I did not keep a copy of the solution.

I don't personally have experience with this, but I did a little research here for you.

Between those two links, it looks like you need to uninstall the printer from the computers with it installed and then install the HP printer back with HP Universal Print Driver (version 4.7.x).

Thanks pc_solutions, I noticed it as well. It was one computer that causing the problem, and soon as they disconnect; the server goes back to normal. I don't know which computer yet, I have to monitor it and see when it happens. I am going to leave the question open, so I can post anything else that may come up. I will let you know what happens.

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

pc_solutions, I noticed in the 2nd link you posted above, that poster linked to the HP info that has since been removed by HP.  I am curious as to why HP would remove that info.

My guess is that it is a workaround, but the frustrating thing is when people just link, and don't state anything from the link.  Gives us no information to work off of! :P
