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.

when you run it from add remove programs everything software will be removed check that the printer drivers are removed since by

Open Printers and Faxes.
 
2.
 On the File menu, click Server Properties, and then click the Drivers tab.
 
3.
 In the Installed printer drivers list, click the driver you want to remove, click Remove, and then click Yes to confirm.
