For whatever reason, the brother US site does not have the MFC-260C driver available. I managed to find it for you on their australian site. Just download the driver based on your operating system, double click on the .exe file, navigate through the options (most likely just taking the default unless you know what you're doing), and it should install the drivers for you. You can copy the .exe file to a flash drive or CD to install it on any other computers.

Brother MFC 260C ink problem.

Once the ink dries in the printhead, it can't be cleaned out. It's almost always the magenta or black that plugs first. The printhead is a shop replacement, and costs more than the new machines available now.
