I uninstalled my Lexmark in January and now have a Canon. While performing some system checks, I noticed that a Lexmark system was running in start up.

I did a search for any files marked Lex*. I came up with the following:
NAME TYPE
LEXSTAT.INI Configuration Settings in C:\windows

LexBce5.exe Application in C:\windows\system32

LEXBCES.EXE.00305C02.pf PF File in c:\windows\prefetch

lex4039p.ppd PPD File in c:\windows\Driver Cache\l386\driver.cab

lex4079p.ppd PPD File

lexmk.ini Configuration Settings

lexoptra.ppd PPD File

lexubl.dll Application Extension

lexubl.hlp Help File

Lexicon file Folder


Okay to just delete these? Or what do I need to do?

thank you!

Right click on each file and choose Properties. If they all refer to Lexmark, then it's probably safe to delete them.

If the files are small enough, you may want to copy/save them somewhere in case after deletion, something messes up... you can then restore the files. Note, you will need to know the directories they currently reside in so in case you need to restore them, you know where they belong.
