    Hpqcxs08 service issue

    Hello, can anyone tell me what is this Hpqcxs08 service and what does it do what if I disable it? I am not able to install hp printers in my Vista Machine although it worked fine previously on Windows XP OS. As soon as I try to install the printer an error message comes up with the HPQCXS08 service. I can go in the properties and disable it but cannot remove it through task Manager services therefore it will not start on restart and the installation of the printer hangs up. So can anyone tell me how to eliminate this process is it really required? Thank you
    I may b a dreamer, but I'm not the only one
