Sorry I'm so late replying, it seems like this group is always down...
I'm adding a new one.

The group is never down, it's part of Usenet if you access through Outlook
Express.

What make and model printer are you trying to install? Do you have the
latest drivers from the manufacturer's website?

Hi Cari,
It doesn't seem to matter which model I try to install. One is an HP
4500DN, another is an HP 5si. I have the latest drivers and have tried
downloading the latest drivers, but I still get the message.
