Windows 7: Default Printer Setting Always Changes

Default Printer Setting Always Changes

My choice for a default printer always changes from HP LaserJet PCL 5 to HP LaserJet series #1. After setting my preference for a default printer, the default automatically changes as noted above after the computer is rebooted. Even when I delete the series #1 option so that the PCL 5 printer is the only choice, the series #1 printer option re-appears and becomes the default when the computer is rebooted. I am making these printer configurations in the Printer and Hardware Devices window.

Thanks for any tips on how to make HP LaserJet PCL 5 my default printer in the Home Edition of Windows 7.

When you're changing the default printer; are you selecting a different printer from the drop down menu when you print something? or Are you going into your control pannel/hardware and sound/devices and printers menu and changing it there? Additionally; you need to uninstall the drivers just deleting the icon in the above menu will not get rid of the drivers.
