I am using windows XP on my laptop. When I try to shutdown a message box comes up 'Ending Program hpcmprmge.exe' I guess this is something related to my HP printer but the printer is not even plugged in. Can I stop this? Thanks

Can't find anything about this particular .exe whether genuine or virus related.

Have you tried connecting the printer and seeing what happens then when you shutdown?

Have you tried the 3 fingered salute ( Control/Alt/Delete ) then click on processes to see if it is running if it is click end process.
