Windows 7: Uninstaller froze while uninstalling HP Printer Driver

Uninstaller froze while uninstalling HP Printer Driver

I was having a problem with the HP printer software so I decided to uninstall all of the software and the driver for the printer and install it again. I first installed the related software one by one and then ran the driver uninstaller from Programs and Features. In the middle of the process, the uninstaller froze and the dialog box that usually appears when a program freezes appeared. I clicked X to close it and somehow the uninstall worked and it restarted my computer. Should I be worried about this or is it ok as long as there are no problems?

Edit: This is a Windows 8.1 laptop.

Try Driver Fusion free (former Phyxion Driver Sweeper)to see if anything is left behind.

Hey, I'm sorry but I don't trust any third party driver related software. I have reinstalled the drivers and software and everything seems to work.

Also, after using my printer, is it ok to just unplug the usb because there is no option to remove it on Safely remove hardware. (It's a laptop)

yes should not be a problem with just unplugging a printer after use.

You mean unplugging the USB cable?
