Windows 7: Not a valid win32 application

x64 (6.3.9600) Win8.1 Pro & soon dual boot x64 (6.1.7601) Win7_SP1 HomePrem

After following Miles suggestion....

This is an AIO printer, so there might be other pieces left over from an install (scanner, fax...)..
What, if anything, relates to this device is shown in
Devices and Printers
Device Manager (I forget where scanners go... imaging?)
CPL -> Programs and Features

What if anything shows in Devices and Printers that relates to this device?

Fixed, Fixed, Fixed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you Milesahead and Slartybart

I used Revo Uninstaller to remove left over registry entries. I find it strange that windows cleanup utility and Microsoft install/uninstall utility did not show any left over HP entries.

After using Revo, I searched for in registry for key named "HP deskjett" and removed everthing

Downloaded the software from HP website and installed successfully.

Thank you both for guiding me in this issue.
