My neighbour has an Epson SX130. All has been fine for a long time, until recently when the printer has regularly started to disappear from his XP machine and is not visible in the printers control panel. When he re-installs the drivers all is fine for a day, or a week, or in the latest case a month before it disappears again.
I have installed the latest driver from Epson's website, but this hasn't improved the situation.
Each time, the windows system event log shows 2 records :
Printer EPSON SX130 Series is pending deletion.
and then 6 seconds later
Printer EPSON SX130 Series was deleted.
Both are attributed to his user logon rather than SYSTEM.
Any ideas how to solve this?
