Epson printer won't uninstall
We had an Epson DX4800 installed as a local printer on a Win XP SP3 Pc.
It has gone, but it won't uninstall from the PC.
Logged on as administrator, it has been deleted from Printers and Faxes and just sits there "deleting"
I went into Add or Remove Programs and uninstalled "EPSON printer Software" which apears to run perfectly and then doesn't go away, despite reboots.
For the time being I've renamed the printer "Do Not Use", but I'd really like to get rid of it completely. Any ideas?
