Yesterday we had a local professional geek come to the house to basically 'clean house' on my wife's computer. While here, she did some clean up on mine also even though it was in good shape.
After leaving, I uninstalled the printer on wife's 'puter and began installation for a new one, a Kodak. Install took a long-long time. Then, when the instructions said to, I connected the USB cord and clicked 'next'. The program did a search for the new printer but came up saying it was not connected. Tried several times, wiggled connections, said all the correct dirty words, held mouth right, etc. Still to no avail.
So, right now, I am reinstalling. Has been 'installing' for about an hour. The loading bar said "2 minutes remaining", now it is saying "13 minutes remaining". That notice has been up for about half an hour. And, I'm not optimistic that, even with a new USB cord, the program will recognize the printer being connected.
