    hi,
    hpqtra08.exe is installed alongside the drivers for Hewlett Packard Imaging devices and installs an easy-to-use traybar icon for quick access to diagnostics. This is a non-essential process.Disabling or enabling it is down to user preference.

    File hpqtra08.exe is located in a subfolder of "C:\Program Files" (mostly C:\Program Files\HP\Digital Imaging\bin\). Known file sizes on Windows XP are 282,624 bytes (26% of all occurrence), 241,664 bytes, 258,048 bytes, 237,568 bytes, 288,472 bytes, 233,472 bytes, 210,520 bytes, 214,360 bytes, 45,056 bytes, 16,384 bytes, 15,872 bytes, 262,144 bytes.
    There is an icon for this program on the taskbar next to the clock. The program has a visible window. The file is not a Windows system file. The process can be uninstalled in the Control Panel. Therefore the technical security rating is 7% dangerous.

    The hpqtra08.exe process provides you with a system tray icon that assists when diagnosing problems with your Hewlett Packard scanner (or other imaging device). If you do not find it useful, you can disable this process. If you do not have a Hewlett Packard scanner attached to your computer this process should be removed.

    hpqtra08.exe is flagged as a system process and does not appear to be a security risk. However, removing Hewlett Packard Tray (08) may adversly impact your system.

    The Process Server database currently registers hpqtra08.exe to Hewlett Packard.

    HPQTRA08.EXE is not suspected as virus. It is part of Hewlett Packard Imaging and this process belongs to HP Products. If you are using any HP Products it available in your task manager. If you don’t want it you can remove it. But you can continue with HPQTRA08.EXE, it will not create any problem.
