My uninstall for my old printer keeps hanging up? How do I uninstall manually?

I use to have an HP PSC & OfficeJet 3.0 on my machine, and I am trying to uninstall the software.
I went to the control panel, and pressed remove, but it keeps hanging up.  I am not running any application software on the machine at the same time.  How do I delete everything manually?

I do not know how to tell what directory to delete, and are there any registry items I would need to delete, If so how do I go about doing this?

Sorry, I do not have the printer any more.  I am just trying to remove the software, and all it says is
HP PSC & OfficeJet 3.0.  As per the uninstall directions, most of the software has been uninstalled, but some pending files exist.  Everytime I go to complete the uninstall, the hard drive works, and then uninstall just stops.
