    need to uninstall program not listed in Programs and Features

    I installed a printer program from CD a for Lexmark 1100 series printer
    which worked with my XP. It does not work with Vista. So, the Help
    instructions tell me to uninstall it all then to replace it with an updated
    driver. The problem is it not listed anywhere that I can uninstall it. It
    does not appear in Programs and Features, ostensibly because of the very
    incompatibility which requires me to uninstall it. The Lexmark printer does
    appear in the Printer list, but does not work and it cannot be uninstalled
    from that location. Help!

    You uninstall a driver in the Device Manager (click the Start orb, type
    "Device Manager" in Start Search, and hit Enter). Expand the device
    category (click on the +), right click on the printer name and choose
    "uninstall".
