In order to get this off of my network, I had to disable the Web JetAdmin
service, disable SNMP on the affected machine, and that still didn't stop
these scans!  I had to go into the registry and find some obscure numeric
key in order to stop these SNMP scans.  I don't remember where it was
exactly, but it seems to me that it was under a reasonable hierarchy,
probably HKLM-Software-HP........

Uninstall the HP printer drivers, I think they go out and scan for new
printers for you.  Make sure you don't have a machine with Web JetAdmin
installed too.
