Thank you and JW - I had seen the cumulative USB Hot-fix somewhere on these
forums, but I picked out just 934633 as it was the one that matched my
all-in-one/printer problems. I've applied it but can't say yet for certain
whether it has cured my printer showing twice - it does only show once now,
but I'll need to see if that remains the case after a few re-boots. If there
are going to be USB fixes in the Windows Updates soon then I will wait for
them. My problems aren't desperate, I can still get everything to work its
