I have installed my Epson C82 printer - but as soon as i switch it on i get
thee "Found new hardward" Wizard telling me that it cannot install this
hardware - the printer driver is unknown. The finish button is the only
choice then offered.
When clicked the printer behaves fine.

How can I stop this New Hardware wizard appearing? I have tried
uninstalling and re-installing the printer several times - but to no avail.
Please advise.

My problem is the same as frederic's, but the Wizard cannot find the software
in the Cd-ROM drive. Printer is a Lexmark Z700 series and the installation
software is in the drive.
