Something has likely corrupted the printer driver. Go to Start...Control Panel...Add/Remove Programs and remove (uninstall) all the Epson stuff there.

Reboot your system, then logon to the Epson website and download the latest software for your printer and install it.

This will fix the majority of these sort of problems.

Thanks... I kind of knew I could do that, but I do not have the printer connected so I just wanted to see if I could just fix up something somehow real quick to fix it so I could just plug the printer in when am able to use it again and just go with doing nothing.

To add a printer I need to have my epson hooked up which currently is not. I guess I will just wait until I hook it up again and reinstall / update.

Thanks!

I dont get this one at all... 5 minutes after I was into startup... epson error popped up saying could not find device driver... something to that affect.

Issue is strange to me because I HAVE deleted the epson printer and have no printers hooked up, and cannot find one thing about EPSON printer on my computer.

Why is this happening?

DISREGUARD THIS POST... I WAS ABLE TO FIND EPSON FILES HANGING AROUND AND DELETED THEM SO I THINK THAT WILL END THIS ISSUE
