Strange Behaviour in Devices and Drivers Window

One of my printer was showing up twice in the dialogues for my Laser printer. I wasn't able tofind the printer but noticed a device in the upper half of the window that I didn't recognize. It displayed the phantom printer name but also showed some System information for my PC. I believe this device should not be showing in the upper half of this window. I am leary about deleting this item.

Any suggestions?

I am running a Dell 9100 Studio XPS and Win 7 64 bit.

If you install drivers for that device, it wont hurt you. If you delete, it may show again later.

If one printer shows up as Copy2, make sure what printer you're actually using (by going to File > Print and check the name of the printer) and delete the other one.

I deleted all references to the double printer and reinstalled the printer drivers. I now have one printer and I am sure I will be able to get the sharing working as well. I appreciate the responses, and will be a regular on this forum, hopefully not always questions.
