After starting the computer, XP "finds new printer hardware". It actually
finds 2 printers to install. I don't want to install either, and would like
XP to quit "finding" them for installation.

The New Hardware Wizard may detect the printer device after every restart of
the computer

i have windows me and am trying to upgrade it to windows xp home edition
upgrade. I put the cd in and when it starts the installation it says, it cant
install because drive C: is corrupt and cant be repaired. What should I do?
I tried that and it keeps saying that Scandisc has restarted 10 times because
windows or another program is writing to the drive and to quit other running
programs. But there are no other running programs.
thanks.

If neither the XP installation nor Me Scandisk can fix the disk, it is time
to buy a new one.

Then simply disconnect them from the computer.
