Hey Lcashagie, Could you explain more on what the issue is? If you have two icons showing up in the Printer section you should be able to just right click and remove the fax from the list.

In the printer and unit folder I have ony one icon, which let me choose between fax ore printer. Is there a way to uninstall the Fax driver?

Little late but I figured this out today for a client.

 

Logged in as Administrator goto Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Print Management > Custom Filters > All Printers

 

This will show the HP OfficeJet 8500 seperate from the fax, right click remove FTW :smileyhappy:
