HP OrderReminder

What is HP OrderReminder?

The prorgam known as HP Cartridge Order Reminder is isntalled with most HP printer devices and is designed to monitor the ink levels of the printer cartridge and popup a warning when the levels are low. I t will then provide a link to order replacement ink from Hewlett-Packard or various partner online stores.


It is typically pre-installed with most new Hewlett-Packard computers. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. The primary executable is named orderreminder.exe.

This program is pre-installed on HP PCs

Pre-installed software such as this is usually included by default on the manufacturer's PC. Many OEM (original equipment manufacture) software that is included with a new PC is useful and in many cases required for the PC to function properly as in the case of various software drivers. However, some pre-installed software is optional and can be safely removed.
Some users and experts alike have reported that this program is considered bloatware or bundleware. Such software is optional and can be safely removed if you do not utilize the features of the progam.
HP like most PC manufacturers engage in the pre-installation of various types of bloat and trialware. Recently, HP released a new service when purchasing a PC (typically for business customers) called HP Premier Image.
  • It is usually licensed for use only on the HP PC on which it was pre-installed.
  • It sometimes difficult for users to remove via the 'Uninstall a Program' feature in Windows.
