After Mac Update, I received a HPDriverCore.framework will damage your computer from HP Printer

Posted by Ninja Space Content on Saturday, October 31, 2020 Under: tech issues
I've owned this HP printer for several years now and today, I got this scary message when I tried to print something: "HPDriverCore.framework will damage your computer".

I thought maybe this was a one off thing so I proceeded but no matter what, this message prompt kept showing up. My HP drivers needed updating but it still had the old files so I had to figure out how to delete this printer from my computer list and completely delete the HP Printer Library files. I own a MAC computer and after googling this I've discovered that this is a problem that many HP printer owners are having! I'm not alone! After I googled how to do all of this, my printer started working again.

Basically, I had to remove the printer from my computer list, then find the HP files for this particular printer and deleted it. Then, when I was ready to use it again, the printer will prompt me to download drivers (new ones) so that it would work again. Lo and behold, I do not have to get a new printer! I'm able to print again.

2022 Update: Well, I probably shot myself in the foot when I updated my Mac to the Big Sur Update (the latest, currently) because now my scanner does not work at all so I attempted to try what I did a year before with the instructions above and now it won't work so I can't print or scan because HP does not have drivers for the Big Sur Mac update. Oh my goodness! So, guys if you did a Big Sur update this time, you won't be able to find the right drivers for the new Mac version if you have a HP Deskjet 1050 like I do.
