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 bundled and preinstalled with various Hewlett-Packard 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 software is designed to connect to the Internet and adds a Windows Firewall exception in order to do so without being interfered with. The main program executable is hpzscr01.exe. The software installer includes 5 files and is usually about 3.27 MB (3,431,232 bytes).

This program is pre-installed on the PC

Such software is installed by the manufacture when delivering the PC to the end user. Some pre-installed programs are considered bloatware as they are simply limited function trials, while others are required for proper PC operation.
