Printer would refuse to uninstall.

A while ago I installed an Epson Photo Printer... series R200 or something like that. Since then I removed the printer and I have a cannon printer now. However, i am unable to get rid of the traces of EPson printer. It always shows as a printer in control panel etc I tried many times to uninstall. It says successfully uninstalled but it still is there. How do I get rid of it?

I forgot to mention a few details of my computer. My computer is running WIndows XP pro. OS and is a homebulit one. It has Pentium 2.53 Ghz CPU. Has two hard disks and one external hard disk attached to it. It has two DVD writers installed and one floppy drive.

Try this: go to Control Panel > Printers. From the File menu select Server Properties. Click on the Drivers tab, select the printer and delete it.

If that does not help, go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Software and see if you can remove the driver from there.

Finally, if you still have the CD for the Epson, see if there is an uninstall option on that.

If all that fails then download the Printer delete utility from the Kyocera-mita web site. Run this utility and delete all orphan registry entries and files that relate to the old printer.
As a last resort use the baove utility to delete all printers and registry/file entries and start from scratch.

Download the utility from http://amistad.kyocera.co.uk/pages/info/kdl/utilities.asp
