Nonexistent printer displayed in home network window
I am afraid that your advice will have to do something with the registry.
I did a clean reinstall of Windows 7 Pro. After the reinstall, I did not install the printer software because I will use another printer. Since I didn't install the printer, I do not see it in the list of programs, neither can I find it in Device Manager. However, when I open Network > "PC"> then I see the old printer (HP Deskjet 6500 Series) listed with other shared folders, files. I can only imagine that during the Op. Sys. reinstallation I had the old printer connected. (How would otherwise my fresh installation know that I had this printer before?) My question: how can I get rid of this printer's name in the Network window? (BTW, this is a Home Network.) I would greatly appreciate any help.
Thanks and best regards,
