Remove printer software before new one?

    I have it on good authority that I'm going to get a new printer for Christmas. Should I remove the old printer software? If so, should I do it before I install the new printer's software?

    Hi frybo yes it is always best to uninstall the drivers for the printer before installing your new drivers for your new printer.
    And a merry Christmas and a prosperous new year to you :)

    XP does a pretty good job of plug and play, you can delete later.

    What if they bought you an aquarium instead?

    You can run two printers
    so to leave drivers should not hurt
    just in case you get bag of coal in that printer box

    Now I'm concerned because, you see, what I got for Christmas this morning was a kiss from my wife. Our family Christmas, with all the presents, won't be until Saturday. So now I have to worry until then about what is in the box!

    In case anyone's interested, on Saturday I got a kiss from my wife AND a new printer. HAPPY NEW YEAR!
