InkSaver/Epson C82

  Gugs 10:36 17 Jul 2003

Tried Inksaver, was not impressed especially with lack of response from Website. Decided to remove from PC via add/remove progs. Although we go through the motions of removal 'InkSaver' remains on add/remove list and in bootup screens. It is still there after all traces "removed ?" using Start-Find-delete.
Now my printer, which was running perfectly on re-filled cartridges previously, refuses to play, even though Epson Monitor shows all cartridges near full.
Removed/reinstalled printer, no change. Coincidence??. Any ideas please on any of above?. Cheers

Reinstall the InkSaver and then reboot and uninstall. The reboot again before using the printer.

To remove follow these step's closely, go to start\find\files or folders type in the box InkSaver click enter key delete all the entry's it finds with InkSaver in it. Next go to start run type regedit and press enter, go to menu under edit click find in the box type InkSaver and press enter it will bring up only one entry at a time, press delete key then click ok to confirm to go to next entry press F3 and delete do this until you get to the end of the registry. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE IN THE REGISTRY other than InkSaver then reboot your computer

woodchip Nothing now in Start-Find as I had cleaned out previously as mentioned. Regedit much more productive and I deleted several refs. but stuck at one

(5820E12F9E7970 "C:\Program Files\InkSaver\Setup\ISSetupResdlf") - that last character could be l. The Brackets are mine.

which would not delete - at least it pretended and then reappeared at next F3 Keying, so there might be others after. Start/Find unable find this file as it 'does not exist'.
InkSaver entries still appear in add/remove and bootup screens.

Start in safe mode and do the registry again

woodchip thanks - will try latest idea in morning.
Jester2K II. PC flatly refused to have anything to do with InkSaver when I tried to re-instal, freezing at different places at different attempts and managing to uninstal printer in the process.
Thanks for your continuing efforts will advise further.

Delete the directory C:\Program Files\InkSaver, reboot then try again to reinstall.

No luck. Think trouble is in printer x going back to HP. Thanks for your help.
