try deleting the printer from Printers and Faxes

start>Printer and Faxes>left click on printer>file>delete

That error message is normally caused by one of the following 3 files being corrupted : autoexec.nt, config.nt or command.com.
All 3 reside in the windows\system32 folder.

The easiest way to repair autoexec.nt & config.nt, is to copy them from the windows\repair folder into system32 folder. Once you've copied them into system32, right click on one of the 2 files, select properties & enable the read only attribute. Repeat for the second file.

Try & uninstall your printer again. If you still have problems, let me know & I'll tell you how to repair command.com as well, plus a different method for repairing autoexec & config, in case the ones in the repair folder were also corrupt.
