Removing printer drivers options

How do i completely remove a driver (and its list of printers) from the "install printer" option in the wizard?

    Thank you, I guess I need to be more clear. When installing a printer, the wizard eventually comes to a selection of printer mfg'er and a list of printers that mfg'er supports. It is those printers that I wish to erase, not an actually installed printer.

For normal scanning you can choose the option of Scanners and Cameras wizard in control panel. But it is better if you have software disk of printer because it contains more option.
Kindly install the scanner software for printer the driver software cd just re install it will install the scanner software and make sure in device manger there is not other usb device listed if it is there just remove it. And refresh it in will automatically install the driver.

Hope this helps. Please rate my response.

Scanning


No, there is no need of installaing any software.
Try to install the printer oce again using the following steps, it will definitely work:

  1. Click Start and then Printers and Faxes .
  2. Follow the steps in the Add Printer Wizard to add the print driver. Select HP from the list of manufacturers and then locate the all-in-one printer driver or fax driver (if your model can send and receive faxes from the computer) from the list of printers. The models will probably be near the bottom of the list.
  3. The printer port should be selected as the USB001 (Virtual printer port for USB) or the DOT4_00[x] HP (all-in-one series) printer port if the first port is not an option.
  4. Select the option to Keep existing driver when that choice displays.
  5. If prompted for a missing file, have the installation search for the file on the All-in-One CD-ROM.
  6. The installation should complete and a Congratulations screen should appear.
This will surely help u.
