Vista not recognising usb printer previously installed

I've been using a Brother MFC printer via it's internal ethernet port for some time now but due to various reasons, now want to connect it to one machine via usb.
Unfortunately, even after uninstalling the software, the printer isn't found when connected to a usb port when the software installation asks for it.
I assume this is because the machine still has a reference to it somewhere? Any ideas welcome. I have no issues with any other usb devices.
