    Unable to Remove Printer in Windows 7 as the Printer Icon comes again after Refreshing

    I have used HP Laser Jet printer but no it is dead and I am not going to use it again so I was trying to remove its software. For this I clicked on “Devices and Printers” and choosed the Laserjet Icon. I right clicked on it and clicked on “Remove Device”. At that time, the Icon disappears and it looks like the device has been removed but after refreshing, the Icon comes back again. What should I do to remove it completely?

    DEAR,,,,




    A stuck print job in the queue will prevent the printer from being removed. Try runningDelete Print Jobs to remove the stuck print job.
    Disconnect the printer.
    Uninstall the printer.
    Restart your computer. Make sure the printer is removed. Manual Printer Driver Removal

    hi, seems your effort was in the right direction. as it failed you in your effort to remove the icon, i can tell you that regisrty editing is the last way you can try. from command prompt type cd/, at this point write regedit and press enter.your registry editor of operating system will be evoked,and from there you can manually remove the notification of the printer so that it will not be shown again.

    Dear,
    There is a way Of course you can't un-install a printer if it does not show up in the device and printer screen. It DOES, however, show up when you decide to print something and you are offered a list of printers to use.

    There is, an option on that screen, Remove,(or maybe Delete, just forgot) which actually removes a printer.

    dear friend,

    Seems like you didn't installed the printer driver correctly.

    So that you can't remove the printer icon.

    Follow the following guideline to do so-

    Click on the search button.

    To open the registry editor, type regedit in the search box & press enter.

    From the registry editor, remove printer icon manually.

    If these doesn't help you, uninstall & re install the printer software again.

    Hope these will help you a lot.

    try removing the HP laser jet printer connection externally from your computer
    1. try reinstalling your drivers for HP laser jet printer
    2. if the same problem is repeating try reinstalling windows operating system make sure that the operating system you are going to install is genuine
