Steps to Manually Remove and Reinstall a Printer Driver


When you remove a printer from the Printers folder in Windows NT 4.0 or Print
Manager in earlier versions of Windows NT, the printer driver file is not
removed from the hard disk drive. This referenced kbarticle describes a
procedure you can use if you suspect a printer driver file is corrupt: Q135406

The Windows NT Server Resource Kit includes enumprn.exe
which you can use if you need to determine which printer drivers are
installed on a system, enumprn will display all
installed drivers, including the version number and supported platform. enumprn is a good utility to troubleshoot print servers where
the clients download printer drivers from the server.
