Lexmark Printer Driver Cleanup Tool Install Update
Thank you so much, I tried everything to get the LexBec Service out of the services menu. Every-time I disabled it I could not use my printer and the printer and fax icons were removed. The Lexmark printer was uninstalled but I found these. The printer I have now is a HP.
I contacted HP and they gave me instructions to change it but it did not work. I am going to send them your link. Connie, I'm glad this was useful to someone. I wrote this entry several months ago and was somewhat disappointed no one had used the tool up to this point or at least no one ever let me know. I use a HP LaserJet now Worked like a charm for me!
I had purchased a new HP Photosmart All-in-One in January quite a nice device BTW , installed the software, but the Lexmark drivers prevented me from getting full functionality out of my scanner. There were several other annoying glitches, too.
Then I reinstalled the latest HP software and everything now works smoothly as it should. And you are most welcome. I'm a software developer. Most technical support people really don't do much but follow a "script". Should you ever need something done along these lines again i. Worked like a charm for me after trying numerous other 'fixes' that didn't work. Why Lexmark makes the Spooler dependant on their proprietary print driver is beyond me. I too am fighting with my Lexmark drivers, so your wee tool is just thing Mine shows those two AND "http".
I am a little scared to continue as I do not want smoke to come out of my machine: Perhaps some 'environment information' would help you. So essentially I have made my printer wireless via the router. I suspect that that is where the "http" piece comes from.
Thank you for having this file available. The printer works fine, but after all these problems with drivers. I'm giving up and getting something else. Sorry for the delayed reply everyone. The first step is to find the 'http' NT service and determine what it is.
Then, if you need the service it refers to, you'll need to modify the batch file before executing it. This is a pretty delicate operation. Feel free to call me - That's my business line. I am going to try this tool on a computer shortly. Unfortunately, I think the printer spool is already screwed up from attempting to manually remove the driver, so it may not solve my problem spool service will not start. I'll be sure to post the results.
Hi, first of all, thank you for this wonderful software. If not, can you let me know what else I should do? Tiffany - You seem to have the same problem as 'ivan' above. I did some quick Internet searching. If you are running Windows Vista, the 'http' NT service dependency might be the cause of the extra service finding the service dependency can be tricky apparently.
My recommendation is to NOT run my tool unless you are familiar with how to make changes to batch files. Tom, Thank you for the Lexmark driver removal batch file you wrote. I don't own a Lexmark printer, but I did install one while over at a friend's house with my Vista laptop trying to work on his computer long story; won't go into it.
Since then I've tried to remove it, but had all the standard items left over. Your tool removed them all. I would guess that tracking down all the hooks Lexmark puts into the driver was probably the hard part. I just want to thank you for putting that time in for all the rest of us.
Mark - Thank you for the compliment. You may want to install VerifyMyPC on your friend's computer as well. Yeah, I know, tooting my own horn as I wrote that product too but who cares? The sole purpose of VerifyMyPC is to make diagnosing software problems easier - it assumes there will be computer problems and tracks only those changes to the system.
It allows people like you and me to go back and understand any recent computer problem in five minutes or less. It doesn't directly fix problems. It merely collates all the system's changes into coherent English sentences with the assumption that something will go wrong and that humans with a technical background are smarter than computer programs. Basically, for us tech. So, try VerifyMyPC out on your computer first. If you like it, put it on your friend's computer too.
Anything that simplifies our lives is a great piece of software. I have a 'little' problem with Lexmark Series software. A few days ago I went to a friend with my laptop to print a very important document, because I thought it would be easier to install the printer on my computer.
I have Windows Vista. When I connected the printer, it installed everithing it needed from the CD. The printer did not work, I couldn't print the document, and now I am stuck with all that useless software that's in the Windows Startup as well. I found your bat file, but it says to uninstall all the software before running it.
Any idea how could I remove the useless software? You will still need to wander through the C: Lexmark printer drivers have this amazing ability to come back from the dead. Thanks, it never occurred to me that one could readd RPCSS to Spooler service with sc config, had the stupid lexmark service running for ages without having a physical printer. I only use a print to PDF file driver now and have my stuff printed at a copy shop. Got tired of dried up cartridges. X-actly what I was looking for!
Those damn Lexmark drivers where a pain in the butt. I just can't thank you enough. I'm a support technician and have had trouble with this problem before. Luckily I came across your removal tool and it worked like a charm. Also in windows vista you have to give this program Administator's rights by right clicking on the program and choosing Run As Administrator.
Thank you very much!! Chad - You're most definitely welcome. Thanks for the Vista tip. Lexmark "LexBec" virus if you ask me. I wouldn't have had to buy a new printer were it not for Vista's Device Incompatibility issues, who knew This is brilliant - I've been griping about this forever and just found your solution. Thanks so much for sharing! Thank you so much Thanks for taking the time to help out those of us who aren't developers You are a life saver!
Tom, I have the lexmark curse also and getting the http listed when I run your file. Is there a batch file for vista home premium? Or is it safe to run yours? Thank you for your help! No one to date has figured out what the 'http' service is.
I've had a X63 for years and the printer part has been dead for many of them. I have been using just the scanner for some time. However, I had to change computers and I couldn't get the X63 scanner to work without the printer. Even the Lexmark scan manager couldn't scan. Error msg said the port was in use by another process, etc.
Needless to say, I'll never ever have anything to do with Lexmarka again.
