I cannot remove my Printer to reinstall because of 2 instances of the same printer being installed.

I go into my Printers Utility in Control Panel and I see one Instance trying to delete a document. The other instance is the same printer with one document in its spooler

I have tried to remove using the Run as Admin utitily.

I am using Vista and the Printer is a Lexmark 3600-4600

Something to try:

Download and install the "Windows Installer Clean Up Utility" from Microsoft's website. click here Run it to see if it lists the installation of your Lexmark printer and, if so, use it to remove the registry entries for the program. Then manually delete the printer's software from C:\Program Files.

You should then be able to reinstall the printer.
