The following was taken from the HP Forum following a Google search....

"Uninstall the printer first using Revo Uninstall a free program on the internet. This program will get rid of the HP registry entires which is a must to reinstall the printer. Make sure you uninstall all the programs HP has for the printer. When using Revo Uninstall do not reboot the computer until you have finished the Revo Uninstall to make sure it cleans the registry of HP data. After you have finished using Revo Uninstall reboot the computer but make sure the printer is not connected to the computer. When you reinstall the printer do it as a brand new printer"
