Is there a device attached to the parallel port on your machine?

Check your Device Manager for the parallel device (Start...Run...type in "devmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter). Let us know what it says and we can work from there.

it says:

"This device is not configured correctly. (Code 1)

To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver."

so should i re-install or drivers or not since what ever it is I don't think I need since everything is working fine.

You could disable the Parallel port in the Bios. Also open Device Manager > View > Show hidden devices > Expand Ports and look to see if something like ParVDM is listed and disable it. Also look in Services for it then set that to Disabled.

Go to Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel and remove any references to the Printer's software.

Then go to the Printers folder and remove/delete the printer from there.

Finally, go into Device Manager and see if there's any remnants of the printer there.

If that doesn't work, there's still a lot more to do.
