    Default Stop a printer driver from trying to install at every Windows 10 boot up

    Hi,
    Have installed windows 10 and fixed most of the very minor hiccups. I have noticed the below message in the Computer Management Event Viewer window. It comes up about 8 times every time I start Windows. I have an Epson printer that works ok but do not have a Gestetner C7640 printer. Is there somewhere I can stop this printer from trying to install at every boot up. It's not really a problem, just an annoyance.
    I hope you can help me and thanks in advance
    Jim

    Identify the Driver, check its settings and see if you can disable Check for updates or something similar.

    Else, check up the startup locations and remove its entry. Freeware WinPatrol can help you do this.

    Cannot find the driver and printer does not exist. Have installed Winpatrol but that does not help.
    Where should I look to find the installation procedure at boot up?
    If I can find it then maybe I can delete it and stop this fictitious printer from trying to install at every boot up.
