Windows 7: Stuck on Starting Windows when printer plugged up

I tried all of what was suggested and it didn't work. I moved the USB down on the boot priority and it didn't worked. I completely eliminated it from the boot process and it didn't work. I am wondering if it is because the printer is a little older. It is a Lexmark X5470 printer. My wife has a newer printer and her pc doesn't have this problem. If anyone has any other ideas I sure would appreciate it.

You don't say how old your printer is but that model is still in production.
I presume you have the Windows 7 driver installed for your printer? Have you tried installing the printer on your wife's computer (Try it when she's out in case you mess up her PC) Clutching at straws now but have you tried a different USB lead?

The printer is about 3-4 years old. I do have the windows 7 driver installed on the printer. I haven't tried it on my wife's pc. when you say different USB lead. Do you mean a different USB cable or plugging the cable into a different USB on the pc?
