Remove the printer's drivers from the device manager. That way your computer won't recognise that a printer needs to be installed.

omegaF...

You might also check in the control panel under Printers and Faxes and remove the printer from there is it is present. Right click on it and choose delete. Be careful not to delete your current printer...

Another, last resort, option would be to just go through with installing the stupid thing, and delete the definition once that's complete.

That may shut Windows up. It tends to get belligerent when it wants something.
