What is HP Solution Center?

HP Solution Center is a program installed with most HP printers. It acts as a centralized point of access for printing tasks, print settings, and maintenance. When you perform a standard installation of the HP software, HP Solution Center installs automatically.


It is typically pre-installed with most new Dell computers. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named hpzscr01.exe. The setup package generally installs about 5 files and is usually about 2.02 MB (2,121,073 bytes).

This program is pre-installed on some 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.
