For instructions to completely deinstall the printer driver from a computer, use the document, "HP DeskJet 670 and 690 Series Printers - How to Completely Deinstall the HP DeskJet v 9.03 Printer Driver."
Microsoft (R) Windows 9x
To minimally remove the HP DeskJet Printing System for Windows - v 9.03 driver to do a clean reinstallation on a Windows 9X system, follow the steps below.
1. Restart Windows 9X to "release" driver files that may be tied up from unsuccessful print attempts.
2. Select Start, Settings, Printers, and delete the HP DeskJet 670C or 690C Series Printer. When prompted if the printer should be deleted, select Yes. When prompted whether to delete files used only by this printer that are no longer needed, select Yes.
3. Exit and restart Windows 9X. (Hint: In the Shutdown menu, select Restart The Computer, hold down the SHIFT key, and select Yes to speed up the restart.)

b. Highlight any program in the list (except Explorer and Systray) and select End Task.

9. Follow the prompts on the screen to complete the installation.
NOTE: If a New Hardware Found message or Update Device Driver Wizard appears during the installation, choose Cancel in that window and continue with the Printer installation.
