    Windows 7 struggles to open programs after file wouldn't uninstall.


    Hello, I have installed wireless printer drivers, using the provided CD, onto a laptop running Windows 7. I needed to download some software updates for that printer. When I tried to config the wireless printer to the network, the search remained in a "frozen searching" loop. I was able to CTRL+ALT+DEL to escape the loop. I then tried to uninstall, but that uninstall exited without completing. So, I right click on the file from the CD, to dump into Recycle Bin, then emptied that out of the Recycle Bin.

    Now, Windows runs very slow and only the internet will open properly. Is there some part of that download still running in the background? RKill didn't seem to open properly either.

    Thanks.

    Try using a system restore point before the problem started.

    And always, always use the latest drivers from the manufacturers website.

    Never the cd.
