Printer works fine, can't stop this 'Found new hardware Wizard' from popping up every time I start-up. I just did a repair using the disk and have had to re-install all the updates. I know it's something easy, I just don't know where to look to set this parameter. Any help would be totally cool! :tazz:

It's trying to install the printer. I'll tell you, I have seen so many fixes for this problem on OS XP and not one has worked. Somewhere, there is a file or a program telling this thing to do this and I can't find it! I wish I would have stuck with computer science back in 1981! I remember after dropping the class, cleaning out the tiny pieces of paper from those bit/byte cards from my back-pack. What a mistake!
