Can't remove a printer. (access denied) Can't change default printer

    Question

  • Fairly easy I hope.   I have two printer connected direclty.  The hp 932c still works fine. The 7130xi used to work but will no longer print.  I was going to remove and reinstall but the message "access denied" appears when I try to remove it.    Any suggestions there?  There is also an hp1100 laser on the network, I used to be able to preint to it but I no longer can.  If you have any suggestions THANKS.

  • I am running Vista Build 5600 RC1. I can not print to a networked printer. I dual boot and can from XP. I figured it was a vista driver problem. I made the mistake of running the XP software driver in Vista and the printer installed as if it was physically connected to LPT1 not on the network. Now, I can't remove it ! Error Message states unable to find printer...etc. and will not allow any further actions. There is no uninstall for the driver I used. HP OfficeJet G85 All-in-One for XP. Any suggestions how I can remove it ?

    Thanks,
