    Unable to uninstall a Lexmark printer

    I am unable to uninstall a Lexmark printer. When I go to programs/uninstall
    program, and click on the printer it states that the printer is busy printing
    and to try again when it is finished. Ofcourse, this printer is not printing
    since it is in a box on the floor. This has been an ongoing issue for three
    days. Any suggestions on what to do would be helpful. Thanks

    Hi jcf

    Try uninstalling the printer driver from within Device Manager.
    You may have to reconnect the printer to do this, not sure!
    Make sure, if you reconnect the printer, that you disconnect
    it before you reboot or it will find a driver for it again.
    Then, if its still in programes & features, try uninstalling it
    again.

    Won't hurt to try.
