Lexmark E210 printer. Works fine and has back through early days of XP. XP Pro fully patched now running.
When SP2 was installed (the day it came out), began getting (on every boot) a window advising me that I needed to install sw for my printer. My presumption is this is caused by an unregistered (but working fine) driver that SP2 suddenly doesn't like and no way is Lexmark going to rewrite it or register it for a printer so old.
Tried all combinations of power on and off at boot, deinstalling printer, reinstalling printer, etc.
If I just hit cancel in the install sw window that the printer wizard brings up on boot all if fine but it is a PITA and I'd like to get rid of the prompt.
No similar request for installation of a Epson printer.
Both printers USB 1 connected.
Is there some bit in the registry I can set to ignore the fact that the driver is unregistered? Other ideas?
