I purchased a new printer last weekend. Before I installed it, I did the proper means of uninstalling the old printer. Installed the new one. It works fine. But everytime I log in an error msg appears:

Error loading C:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\lxbttime.dll. The specifiied module can not be found.

I found it in msconfig|startup. I unchecked it, clicked Apply and rebooted and get the same msg. Went back into msconfig|startup and it was rechecked.

Contacted Lexmark and they haven't been any help.

There is another line in the Startup folder: C:\program files\lexmark 5200 series\lxbtbmgr.exe.

The Lexmark 5200 folder does not exist. I am assuming it is getting directions from the registry.

How can I delete these from the startup folder and/or registry?

Thanks for your assistance.....

Hi there

You're right in thinking that this startup entry is set in the registry. To remove it from startup, follow these steps....

I advise you backup the registry first, or create a system restore point, just in case!
Go to Run.. and type in 'regedit' without the quotes, to start the registry editor.
Navigate to the location :

Highlight the entries related to your old lexmark printer & delete them.

This should do the trick. There are several other 'Run' folders in the registry which may also contain the lexmark entries. Its unlikely but its worth checking. Make a note of the 2 files names (i.e lxbtbmgr.exe & lxbttime.dll) & search the entire registry for them. If you find any more entries for these two files in a RUN folder, then delete them also.
