Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit.

I had tried all of your previous suggestions. I finally rebooted the computer to its original out of the box setup. I had backed up the computer on my clickfree. The first thing I did was install the printer driver and it worked just fine. Problem solved and learned alot, thank you to everyone for your suggestions.

It sucks to have to do that just to get a printer installed but at least it worked. Not having actual install media puts a kink into what you can do. Hopefully you'll be problem free for a long while.
