  1. How do I uninstall my printer?


    I have a new printer so uninstalled old software and reinstalled the new.

    Printer wouldn't scan and I discovered that part of the old software remains.

    Tried to uninstall it a message comes up about driverpackageinstall site:answers.microsoft.com and says the administrator needs to sort it.

    I am the administrator but it just won't uninstall.

    Can someone help please?

    It is an HP Printer software and I'm running Windows 10


    Many thanks

    :)

  2. Unable to remove a printer gone in "Unspecified" group

    An outdated, or incompatible printer driver could be causing the issue. We suggest that you update your printer driver, or
    uninstall the printer driver; then, restart the computer, and have Windows install the latest driver automatically. Check the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + R.
    • Type devmgmt.msc and press enter.
    • Locate the printer driver and uninstall it.
    • Restart the computer.

    Keep us posted.

    • When you say “uninstall/remove device from system part just hangs with a green bar that continues blissfully” what exact error message/error code do you receive?

    • Are you the admin of the computer?
    Let’s follow the steps below to uninstall the printer.

    As an initial steps, I suggest you to try uninstalling the printer application through Programs and Features and check if it helps.


    • If your printer connects to the computer with a USB cable, disconnect the cable from the printer.

    • Search Windows for programs and features, then click Programs and Features in the list of results.

    • In the list of installed programs, click your HP printer name, then click Uninstall or Yes.

    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the software removal.

    • Restart the computer.
