How to remove/uninstall printer driver (in Win7)?

After having used succesfully a Kyocera printer FS-1020D over some years on my Win 7 system I replaced it by a newer, other laser printer from another manufacturer.

Now I want to remove the old Kyocera printer driver from my system.

The usual recommended way therefore is to call

printui /s /t2

and to remove the printer driver on the "drivers" tab.

Unfortunately this does not work here. Windows 7 tells me:

"The following packages can not be deleted
oemsetup.inf (x64).
This package contains the following driver(s) that are in use:
Kyocera Classic Universaldriver (A4 models); This driver is used on:
kyocera Classic Univerdaldriver (A4 models)"

Hmm, how do I unlock the Kyocera driver to be able to remove it otherwise?

Is there any other way to remove the Kyocera driver (e.g. at startup)?

Hi Peter,
I checked the support section and found this:
Do you have any tool which deletes all the drivers completely?
With Kyocera’s own “deleter” you can remove all the drivers, print monitors, entries in the register database and INF-files completely.

You can download the Kyocera 'deleter” from the download section under utilities.

I had a look in the download centre but couldn't find 'Utilities' so I presume it must mean on the actual Printer support page?

I found it! You need to click on 'software/CD's' on your printers support page:
