How to remove old device drivers in Windows 10/8/7
I upgraded to windows 10 on my laptop. I can print ok, but cannot scan reliably. After I wait maybe 15 minutes or logging off and then logging back on I can successfully complete another single scan; then the process starts all over again. I un-installed and re-installed the software a number of times and now it thinks there are three network printers installed. I want to get back to square one and start over as if I never had a HP printer on my system. When I try to initiate a scan from the printer it eventually fails indicating there is no connection. The printer works perfectly with my desktop running Windows 7 professional, and another laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium. Prior to upgrading to windows 10 Home on this laptop the printer worked perfectly also. Please help me completely uninstall my software and my printer from my system so I can start over. I will be glad to help you.
