Hello, I'd like to to a full clean uninstall of an HP LasterJet 8000 printer on a persons machine.  Besides the obvious, going into to the Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs, what else is there to remove?  i.e. Registry, Temp Files or anything else related to this printer on the "sub-surface" level.  I want to completely and totally remove it from their system.  Thanks for your help.

 On the File menu, click Server Properties, and then click the Drivers tab.
