Windows XP has a user interface feature to delete driver files – to delete printer drivers in Windows XP:

  1. Click Start, and then click Printers and Faxes.
  2. On the File menu, click Server Properties.
  3. On the Drivers tab, click the printer driver that you want to delete, and then click Remove.

Or you can get to Printers and Faxes via Control Panel and then proceed with 2 & 3 above.

Markd71's Link working version

It's the underscores that mess link up. If you have 2 or more it turns the text inbetween into italics and breaks it.

It works if you highlight some text as above Markd71's Link then click on the globe and paste the url into the popup box.

swanny2, I think you are supposed to choose the language on the printer lcd menu when you first set it up. Try holding down the Menu button and then switching on the printer and see if maintenance comes up on the lcd on the printer. (I read that on another forum but it was for a different brother model printer - I'll see if I can find it again) Ah Here it is
