    This can be resolved by deleting the "HP RC Mirror Driver". To do so, follow the steps below.

    1. Click on Start
    2. Right-click on Computer to the right (My Computer on XP) then left-click on Properties
    3. Click on Device Manager to the upper left-hand side of the screen (on XP click on the Drivers tab and then Device Manager)
    4. Expand Display Adaptors in the list
    5. Right-click HP RC Mirror Driver and select Uninstall , and select Delete the driver software for this device (if present).

    Note: These drivers are used for a remote connection with HP support. If you wish not to delete the driver you do also have the option of right-clicking and selecting Disable.
