Windows 7: Multiple devices listed as Unknown, all the same printer

27 May 2014   #1

Windows 7 Pro
Multiple devices listed as Unknown, all the same printer

So I'll try to keep this short.

I have a HP B209a-m that I have just gotten rid of and now am trying to remove all the software from my system. I've run revo and the issue still persists.

It gives me a device install path of ROOT\MULTIFUNCTION\xxx where xxx is a number. I have about 20-30 of these instances in my device manager and all have different install paths. I'd really like to remove these. I've run the HP L4 Uninstaller multiple times and still the issue is here.

I'd just really like to remove HP from my life.

Thanks for the help.

hello and welcome entfy mate try first backing up the registry Registry - Backup and Restore

See my pic AFTER you have backed up that registry but please do that the very first thing I usually make two copies in say the desktop and a document.
Let us know what if any HP software is there you can also check that entry named Printers.
