After I reimaged an SSD, I have about 15 icons of the same printer. How do I get rid of them?
Xerox Phaser 7500DN PS
From easiest to hardest, I would begin by stopping the PrintSpooler service and change the startup type to Manual or Disabled then deletethe printers. Restart the computer, then restart the service and see if theprinters return. If they return, redo the previous, but do not restart theservice. Open Print Management from Control Panel>Administrative Tools andtry to remove all drivers. Restart computer and restart the service.
The next two are extreme and should only be tried if youknow how to back up the registry and are comfortable running CMD shell commands.
Both of these are done after verifying the Print Spooler isoff and the printers are deleted from Devices and Printers. Backup the registrythen search for all instances of the printer name and delete all entries. Ifthat does not work from an admin command line, run DEL /S /Q *.* in the C:\Windows\System32\spool\printersdirectory and from C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers run
RD /S /Q IA64
RD /S /Q BIDI
RD /S /Q w32x86
RD /S /Q x64
If the printers still reappear, you might need to call sometype of exorcist.
Hope this helps.
