Sorry that may not help.

Download the drivers again, this time choose save. Select a location (eg. my documents) and save it there.

Click on the printers button in the start area, it's on the right after clicking on the start globe. At the top choose add a printer then go through the steps in the add printer wizard. It will ask you where the drivers are and choose them from where you saved them to.

When I followed the link I got a page with an Epson print utility, not a printer driver. When i used Epsons, you had to download the driver, and then run the downloaded file. The programme would prompt you to plug in the printer
