Hi jimmer409?

Try entering filename into search; I've just done this and found 3 instances of the file in Windows\system32\drivers and Windows\system32\driver cache.

Hope this helps, Toxin.

have you searched on the driver cd which came with the printer, it may be there but in a different directory, canon & Olivetti are known for this......
