Rogue file keeps appearing.

My daughter bought a Brother multi-purpose printer etc., I thought I would download the software onto my PC to show her, and to see for myself how well it worked. I uninstalled the software afterwards but something else keeps reloading 'Brother USB Printing Support' file. I have gone through 'regedit' and removed all the entries but it still keeps reappearing on boot up. Any suggestions where I might look?
I am running W98se.

look in msconfig. Start, Run, msconfig.

There's no mention of it in 'msconfig startup'. P.

click here

the file (i think) is related to drivers, this may help..

I downloaded the file, but in the 'Options' menu it only lists the drivers for my existing Epson and Canon printers.

Maybe not related to drivers then!!
will have to look a bit deeper..

Is the Brother folder still on C Drive? If it is try deleting it or erasing it!

""Use the printer driver information cleanup tool (ptsweep.exe) to remove the printer driver information from your PC.""

I think my link has established it is not driver related but USB, still cannot find any relevant info..
