Re: how to uninstall a officejet 6600 printer

I am running Win 7

1. There is NO UNINSTALL PRINTER

2. I have a remove device.

  I unplugged 6600 and clicked on REMOVE DEVICE

That eliminated the (copy) printer.

Then I REMOVED the other 6699 printer.

I REBOOTED and when checking printer there was still a HP-6600 printer there.

AGAIN, I went on it and clicked REMOVE DEVICE and again checked printers and it was not there.

I rebooted and checked printers and POOF!!| there is was back there again...

 

This is how one normally REMOVED something but the system for some reason will NOT allow me to remove it.

 

Any other suggestions ?

Really getting frustrating with HP products because of these types of problems.

WHY will HP programming NOT let me remove it ?

 Thanks, Lee

Re: how to uninstall a officejet 6600 printer

WHAT is APPWIZ>CPL ?  Application Wizzard - control panel ?

It just brings up the same box that I get to remove something.

I did exactly as you said and then instead of R-click used the drop-down menu and it does the same.

removed ALL 660 reference, rebooted, still there.

Brought UP Control Panel PRINTERS - Removed HP-660 (gone) closed window, brought it back UP and there it was back again.

Did it again uninstalled, rebooted, brought up PRINTERS and it was back there.

CANNOT remove it ANY way.

Very frustrating.

i can remove any and all other programs which works EXCEPT printer.

Never had this problem until I let someone from HP (in India) remotely access my computer and at some point he installed a 6800 printer but no reference to that. Ever since he did that all my installations have the long name........ HP-6600 (copy 1)

When I pull up Devices and Printers, HP Officejet 6600 printer is checked as the default printer and I cannot uncheck the square.
