This may help: look at startup-items
Authored by: SOX on Feb 03, '04 03:23:15PM

the HP printer driver software install adds a program that launches at user login. On my system (I use an HP5500 scan.print fax) it appears there are two programs. One is a control center that lived in the dock. the other is something called pipedaemon which I suspect is probably used to shuttle scanned docs to helper applications.

I found that I could leave these things enabled for one user (the default user who's desktop the computer boots to) and turn these off in the "startup items" of the other users and everything still functions.

This may be the origin of the FUS issue. cant verify this.

I can't see anything in Startup Items I could disable, and the HP Communications process is running all the time. How do I exactly disable it?
