Windows 7: How should I reinstall printer/drivers?

All the repo is is a backup folder for stored drivers. Create a system restore point for now!
and then delete them and restart. I have never known or had issues doing so.

I'll have to look up how. Can I create a restore point for the day before I installed that software? Then you're saying I can delete the brother drivers in the repo folder. Then how do I boot to the restore point?

If you press start then in the search search SYSTEM RESTORE it will let you go to a date that is available windows automatically creates points you can restore to. I bet you can find one before you installed the software as it makes a restore point in a little calender and will say Restore from the day you installed.......?????? and one before it give it a try

Its very self explanatory system restore

1) You cannot create a restore point for an earlier time. You can only use ones already created.

2)To get to restore point, you need to boot to your Windows 7 install DVD, select Repair My Computer, then restore point.

So, I boot with the CD in? What happens to all of my programs and data?

Nothing, if you do it right. Boot to the CD, (go to bios, set boot device to dvd drive) select language, then click repair my computer, NOT install now.

Oh boy, I'll wait 'til the morning ... can I back out of the CD boot if I need to?

I just purchased a GTX 470 and would like to know if I need to reinstall my drivers. I'm still going to use my 9800 GT but the drivers for it are exactly the same as the drivers for the GTX 470 on NVIDIA's site. Do I still need to reinstall or can I just plug and play?
