Hi,

Previously I had Canon S200spx BJ Printer, which i dont use it now, so i removed the printer and its driver. This printer had created a folder in C: BJPrinter, which i removed but it comes back again, the moment i restart the computer this folder appears in the drive, i have tried to delete it a number of times but it reappears.

Is the folder created during installation of printer or is it a virus, any suggestions friends.

Thanx in advance

Try from add remove hardware or device manager.

Ok This is how i did

First i went to Start-Printers and Faxes and selected Canon printer and clicked on delete

Again from Add Remove Programs i uninstalled the Canon Software

Shutdown the computer and Unplugged the printer and restarted it

I also removed the folder from Program Files

After a Week or so i just enabled 'show hidden files and folders' and then i saw this folder in C drive, i deleted it.
Again after a few days i saw this folder in C drive i again deleted it but it reappears, i even tried to remove from safe mode. This folder is Hidden one

There is no problem with it but i want to know why it is not deleting

I request to help me

Thanx

There is no hardware installed only the folder i not deleting

I'm wondering if the uninstaller isn't complete and it's still leaving things in the registry. Go to regedit and do a search for the name of the folder that keeps reappearing or the printer model or something like that.

I do :) press print screen(may be prnt scrn) on your keyboard(above the insert button). that takes a pic of the desktop and puts in the clipboard. Then go into paint and hit ctrl-z. save it and post the attachment here.

Ok this is the screen shot of the C: drive

According to Canon's support site you should run the Uninstall from Start, All Programs, Canon folder and not Add/Remove programs. Of course you'll have to reinstall to do this. If that still doesn't work try emptying the folder first' or Shift + Delete (bypasses the Recycle Bin).

that's the thing i every time do to delete a file or folder

I always press Shift+Del, its become a habit

Wat shall i do shall i reinstall the printer and uninstall it from Start-allprograms

That's what i'd try.

I also agree, that seems to be the best option...

First of all i thank all u guys who have spent such precious time 4 me, trying to sort out the problem.

At last the problem solved, donno how i missed these registry entries. I scanned my registry using Registry Mechanic 5.0 and Easy Cleaner, they found some 30 entries related to Canon Printer, and after deleting them i got rid of the folder

Thanx once again
