Try disconnecting printer from pc closing any apps in the system tray that are related to the printer and then try to uninstall the printer,if that fails try the same but in safe mode.

Go to start\Settings\Printers right click your printer and delete, then start\find\files or folders and type Lexmark then delete all the Lexmark it finds next.

Next go to start run type regedit and press enter, go to menu under edit click find in the box type Lexmark and press enter it will bring up only one entry at a time, press delete key then click ok to confirm to go to next entry press F3 and delete do this until you get to the end of the registry. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE IN THE REGISTRY other than Lexmark then reboot your computer

you could also try reinstalling the original software then uninstall there might be missing files
