Device Manager Error

I'm doing support for someone and the device manager shows multiples of 5 printers with 3 -6 instances of the printer in the other devices tab.

First thing I did was remove them from the device manager then I stopped the HP Network Device support service and that caused the printers to show back up. I think this service is causing the issue.

Possibly they repeatedly tried to incorrectly install printers. Delete all printers and start from scratch.

That has been done before. It is a reoccurring error. I researched for the problem, but nothing seems to be a solution.
