    Under Device Manager there are 12 things that start with USB. One is USB Printing Support so I clicked that. Under General is says device is working properly; under Driver it won't let me click on "uninstall". So I am now stuck again.

Make sure usb cable and usb ports of computer working fine.
Go to start menu->control panel->printer and faxes then right click on printer icon click on property then go to Ports tabs and make sure vitual usb port is enable then apply.
If all are fine then you need to uninstall printer driver and usb driver.
For that press windows key + R key so you can see run type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok then you can see device manager.Then uninstall all usb drivers then it automatic install usb drivers.
Go to control panel-.add remove programs and uninstall printer driver then if you haven't disk then download driver from below link.

Also download patch/upgarde from above link and install.
Then it will work fine.

  • Make sure you are entered in windows with administrator rights.
    Then when you right click on usb driver in device manager you can see uninstall.
    If you are still not able to uninstall it then go to control panel->add remove programs and remove driver from there.
    Let me know if you need further assistance.
