Laurie et al, For those of you who want to get rid of the basic XP drivers that get installed automatically with your Epson printers, you can do so by going to Hkey_local_machine/software/microsoft/windows NT/currentversion/print/printers in the Registry where you will find entries for all your currently installed printers. For example, my 1270 shows up there twice - as an Epson Stylus Photo 1270 and as an Epson Stylus Photo 1270 EscP/2. If you simply delete the EscP/2 entry, this stops the basic printer showing up in the printers lists. It is still installed (because it doesn't get reinstalled when you reconnect your printer or reboot), but doesn't keep showing up as a printer when you print.
