    I have two unused printer drivers in windows xp, home edition that I can't remove. My software programs wnt to keep degaulting to them and since the printers don't exist, I am unable to print. When I go to control panels, printers, the icons for these two printers are still there, with the word under them "deleting" in light gray text. I have tried removing in safe mode, and that doesn't work either. Suggestons?

    In control panel cick on view then customize and check description bar. You should then see a red pc icon with an x through it. Click on it and select to delete the printer then reboot.
