    printer icon hangs (XP Pro SP2)

    I deleted a Dell A940 printer under Printers and Faxes, but the icon is still in the right system tray next to the clock. It has a red slash through it, and none of the links on the submenu go anywhere, but the icon won't go away. Any ideas?

    Have a look in "Add or Remove Programs" for some type of Dell A940 printer utility and uninstall it. The icon you refer to is probably some printer monitoring / utility software that was installed with the printer. The icon is now showing the red slash because although the printer itself has been deleted, the software remains and it can no longer communicate with the printer.
