Couple of people have emailed me asking:
What is this hpqcxs08 service? What does it do and what would happen if I disabled it?
The service named hpqcxs08 is used by HP Software Products to detect and or communicate with a HP printer device. The hpqcxs08 service path is = C:Windowssystem32svchost.exe -k hpdevmgmt
When Disabled the Hp Solution center will not detect the HP printer when it’s connected.
When Enabled the HP Solution Center can read how much ink and can communicate with the printer
Best description for hpqcxs08 – it is a HP Communication Service
