    Old printer installation gives Status:Error

    Denis - I'm afraid I don't understand what you mean by: " I suggest you click on your Start menu's HP group..."

    However, I carried out your steps 2 and 3 and removed the printer then restarted the PC and the printer returned so nothing achieved. Could you please elaborate on step 1, thanks.

    Old printer installation gives Status:Error

    1 I suggest you click on your Start menu's HP group, right-click on the printer's entry within that and select Uninstall. I'd also suggest rebooting when that is done. That should do all that needs to be be done.

    2 But then check Settings, Devices, Printers & scanners and select the device if it is shown and click on Remove the device. Again I'd suggest rebooting when that is done.

    3 Then check
    Start menu,
    Windows system,
    Control panel,
    {set this to View by - Small/Large icons, just so you can see all the entries},
    Devices & printers,
    select the device if it is shown,
    right-click on the device & select Remove device.
    Again I'd suggest rebooting when that is done.

    Steps 2 & 3 should not be needed in a perfect world.

    I would not go any further in removing drivers than what these steps have accomplished.

    1 The downloaded version will be the most up-to-date version available. It will definitely run because it will be an exe file but do remember to use 'compatibility mode' as explained above.
    2 Yes, "for Windows 98, Me, 2000 Pro and XP" is what I'd expect it to be.
