Windows 7: Devices and Printers

Devices and Printers

I added a wireless printer to my PC and whenever I go into Start\Devices and Printer\ I get nothing...An window. I do know the printer was added because when I go to print I get the option to choose the printer. Can I repair this somehow.....? Maybe with the Windows 7 disk?

The windows disk will not help you here.

If you want to print something does the printer function properly ?

Have you tried uninstalling the drivers, then restarting windows and let windows install them ?

Or downloaded the drivers from the manufacturer`s website and installed them ?

Yeah good news is everything prints fine. As I said the printer is there....

As evidenced in the attached picture. This also happens whenever I have my external drive attached to my PC. I have 2 usb ports in the front and no matter what port I choose it happens on both...I also can't eject the drive safely. I do have another post about this but sadly no one was able to assist...Hopefully I can get some help, shortly than re-imaging my machine....Thanks
