Thank you for the links, I downloaded and tried both of them but niether of them will remove "PRINTER DRIVERS"
Driver cleaner is good for clearing out video /Nvidia drivers
Revoun looks like a suped up version of the Control panel ADD/Remove tool.
I am tryoing to remove some printer drivers from the PC.
I can delete the icon OK but the driver is still installed, so I go to "server properties" and say delete the drive and it says "cannot do this the driver is in use", which it is not
I just want to clear out all of the printer drivers and start installing them again.
BTK1W1, thanks for the hints.
I tried stopping the print spooler, but then all the printers dissapear from the screen and when I go to Server Properties to delete a driver is says"The print server is not running", and will not display anything. This is getting me down, it should be easy to delete a driver .....
The full process is to delete the printer from "printer and faxes" then open services.msc, locate the Print Spooler service. STOP the service, then START the Service again. Back to the printer and faxes, go to File > Server Properties. Select the Driver tab, locate the driver you want to remove, select it, and hit the "Remove" button. Do this for all of the printers you want to remove.
I want to clear all print drivers from a xp pc, I have tried deleting in the server properties, but it says printer in use cannot delete. I know that the printer is not in use.
Disconnect the printer which you want to remove the driver. Then from Devices and printers->Right click>select server properties>Select port option Delete the preferred Printer port>Select Drivers>Remove the Driver and Restart your System.
