I upgraded from win.me to xp home edition,when I try to install my all in one printer
I get as far as the prompt to connect the usb cable after I comply with this the system freezes.
I have checked the system devices which shows no conflicts,I reinstalled win.me and had no problem
reinstalling my printer.The same problem occured when I reinstalled xp.any help wih this problem would be very much
appreciated.

Thanks David.
