I just installed OSX Leopard into my husbands Mac G5 1.8.

Customer Question
I just installed OSX Leopard...
I just installed OSX Leopard into my husband's Mac G5 1.8. I get constant HPIO Trap Monitor quits. I've looked at the forums, but I am not that tech savy. I went on the HP web site to see about downloading a new driver for the HP Photosmart C7250 printer we have connected, but all that is offered is a new driver for Snow Leopard, not Leopard. Do I have to now install Snow Leopard to be able to download the update for the printer.

Hi thank you for choosing just answer for you IT support needs. You can remove the HPIO trap monitor from your system drive and it will no longer plague you.

It is unfortunate that it is not completely compatible with 10.5.X and above.
The trap monitor is located here for you to delete;

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
