I need to knw what version of Windows 7 do you have? But to go into some steps t take right now:

<span class="JA_chatAuthorName"CustomerSystems :


  1. Open Printers by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking Printers.




  2. Right-click the printer that you want to remove, and then click Delete.


    If you can't delete the printer, right-click it again, click Run as administrator, and then click Delete. If you are prompted administrator password ***** confirmation, type the password ***** provide confirmation.



<span class="JA_chatAuthorName"CustomerSystems :

Then after you remove the Printer from the PC, you must Reboot the PC.

How goes it?
Expert:  VanMagnus Systems replied 2 years ago.
OK, but please note:
I instructed you to use the Web Site VS the installation Disk. The Web Site is up to date where as most disks are a few months to a year or so behind the Web Site. Just file that away future....
