Ron,
Just a guess...try stopping the spooler service in Control Panel / Admin
Tools / Services then see if you can delete the printer

Hi Mike,

>Can you remove it from the registry?

I backed up the registry, and then went to the branch you specified. No=
printers listed at all. So I did a search for "5p" (my old printer was
a=  HP LaserJet 5p) and deleted all references to the printer. After=
rebooting, the old printer is still in the list and still freezing the=
screen when I try to delete it or unshare it. I tried to restore the=
registry from the backup, but it wouldn't accept it... that bothers me
a=  little. I was leery of deleting registry keys because I'd never know
if I=  got them all or not, and it could bite me later on even if I
solved the=  immediate problem by doing it.

Still puzzling on it...

Thanks, 

Ron
