I am trying to install my Lexmark 1020 printer which worked OK under win98 on my other computer but I can't install it on this one under winXP.
I can not delete the previous attempt to install and I still have the new XP drivers installed. I have done a fresh download of the drivers for XP and wish to start afresh.
I have tried to delete the printer under "Printers and Faxes/delete" and also from "Server Properties/Drivers/remove but I am told that the printer is being used by another program.
I have shutdown then restarted but I still get the same result. There are no other programmes running. The only thought I have is that I am logged on as administrator with a password and maybe I am not set up to access the printer deletion. I have actually carried out the procedure yesterday and managed to delete them OK but today I can't.
One more thing, I shutdown the 'puter last night and did not switch off the mains power. This morning I found that it was switched on and waiting for my password on the log in screen, I think that maybe the power management needs setting up, I also found that Norton Works 2003 antivirus tries to dial out even though I am on line. Well that’s the full story, anyone any ideas?
