Could be print jobs pending in spooler you may need to delete these first.

It may help as  ÑÌÇKÑÂMË says or simply to power down and switch off your computer.

I don't think it will matter to install a new printer while the old is still there. The probability is that the new (extra) printer will work and become the default printer............ But first try and be rid of that busy message by whatever means you find works

Would uninstalling in 'Safe Mode' work? TR
