    printer driver blocked by administrator


    I recently installed Windows 10. When I connect my HP 1102 printer and try to install the driver the system tells me its been blocked by the administrator because its unsage. My user profile says I am the administrator. How do I unblock the driver (tell the system its safe?)

    Thanks

    Install a printer driver.

    I'm trying to install a HP printer driver and I'm getting the following response:

    This app has been blocked for your protection.

    An administrator has blocked you from running this app. For more information contact the administrator.

    Setup.exe

    Please advise how I can install this drivers.

    Thanks...

    HP printer software update.

    I have an HP380 All in one Printer. I downloaded the updated driver and got my printer to work for a time. Then I tried to change printer ink cartridges and when I tried to use the HP Solution Center software to install and align the cartridges the application
    was blocked. I tried to run it from the All Programs list and I received the message that the program had been blocked and I need to contact the administrator to get permission to run the program. I am the administrator because this is my laptop and no one
    else has permission to make changes to my computer. Does anyone know how to change the administrator controls in Windows 10 so that I can continue to install and run the software for my printer?

    Are you downloading the driver from the HP website or using a driver already supplied? (This message is normally displayed when you try to install a driver that is not compatible with Win 10)

    Try selecting your printer from this page:

  5. Try downloading the full featured driver package listed on this page

    HP P1102 Driver

    Its a somewhat large file, but give it time to download. Once it does, try and install the driver with that. Ive seen issues with standalone driver installations that dont always work. This method usually fixes it. Usually... not always.

  6. Also, when you install the HP software, it's best to NOT have the printer already connected. The installer will popup a page asking you HOW the printer is to be connected during the installation. When you see that page, connect the printer and select the correct connection option on the page.
