Every time Microsoft does an updated, which is quite often, it disables these HP drivers and then my printer stops working with everything except Google Cloud Print and in the Windows settings it says "Driver Unavailable" and I am so sick and tired of this crap that Microsoft keeps dishing out! WHY, WHY, WHY do they keep doing this crap. The more they keep blocking stuff that's not Microsoft, the less I want to use Microsoft. They do this crap deliberately. I just saw their latest blocker on a friend's new tablet. Her tablet comes with "S mode" and a dire warning if you disable their damn S mode, which is exactly what you have to do if you want to download Google Chrome. I'm glad I saw that too, because I'm going to buy a decent tablet in January . Specifically, one that doesn't come with "S mode". I guess they'll never quit. What a shame. That's all I can say.

@Louie: Thank you for sharing!

I guess S mode is great for some users. Personally I would be pretty annoyed if I could only choose application from the Windows store.
