windows xp sp3 new hardware wizard keeps trying to install a printer that's not hooked up to my computer.

I've deleted all printers and print drivers from the system but I'm still getting the new hardware wizard starting up every time I reboot, looking for a printer.  I don't want to disable the found new hardware wizard as that is not a true fix.  ANy ideas how to fix it would be greatly appreciated.
