Printer Re-appears after being Removed?!?!?!?!

I Took My laptop over to my friend's house The other day, and needed to print a document to give to him. I was connected to his wifi, and he has a wifi capable printer. I went to the "Network" Folder and clicked on his printer. Windows 7 automatically installed the driver, it worked flawlessly. Later After I went Home, I decided to remove the printer, since that was a one time event. I went to remove the device from devices and printers, and after I removed the device, I refreshed the list, and it reappears!

It's Not In The Device Manager However My Printer Is.

The Photosmart is mine, the OfficeJet Is His.

Is There Something Else I Can Try?

This Bugs Me That I Cant Remove It.

Thanks In Advance,

Andrew B

I Haven't Attached Anything on here before. I Hope I Did it right. :)

Try this
Click the start orb and type
print management
and hit enter
in the left column select
in the middle pane right click and delete the unwanted printer(s)
back in the left column select
in the middle pane right click unwanted drivers (associated with unwanted printers) and choose remove driver package.
See if that works for you

Thanks Trouble, It's Gone Now!!! I'll Remember This For Future Reference. :)
