    TRY THIS:

    Select Start

    All Programs

    Select HP

    Right click HP Update

    Select Properties

    Select Compatibility tab

    Check Run this program as administrator

    Select Apply

    Select Show settings for all users

    Check Run this program as administrator

    Select Apply

    Select OK

    Select OK

    The computer might need a restart at this point.

    then:

    Select Start

    All Programs

    Select HP

    Select HP Update

    Search for updates and install...

    When I go to the property settings of HP Update, under Compatibility, I do not have an option for "run as administrator." Any ideas?

    Tom:

    Thank you so much for the fix you suggested. It may not work for everyone, but it certainly did for me. Found your suggestion by chance; HP has not responded to previous notes I've sent them, and I've had the "installation cancelled" HP updates issue for some time.

    Funny - this morning they sent me a fix to fix the "installation cancelled" issue, and IT was cancelled when I tried to run it. After applying your suggested fix, however, it and everything else installs fine.

    Thanks again for taking the time to suggest the fix.
