I received a new Windows 7 HP Elitebook from my company and they have disabled Windows Update. The company wants to control all updates themselves. Hence, I cannot install my faithful DeskJet 895Cxi Printer. Can anyone send me a driver that I can install manually ? Seems a waste to junk a perfectly working printer.

The post here described in solution 2 how to find the driver on Microsoft's Catalog site. The 64 bit version is the 11.6Mb one, the 32 bit version is 11.4Mb.
Once you download the cab file open a DOS window and navigate to the directory where you saved the file. Expand the file with the following command:
expand *.cab -f:* .\
Then go to the Devices and Printers directory, Add a Printer and say "Have Disc" and then point to the directory where you downloaded the file. Note that you may need Administrator priv's to add a printer, depending on how the group policies have been set up.
