This is the only solution that I can give, it's called Printer Setup Repair. I'm sure that you can use it for the trial period. Cross your fingers.

Hi,
I downloaded that program but was unsure how to use it as the printer I am trying to install is a Toshiba printer and they did not seem to have an option for it.
but thanks for your reply man I appreciate it.

here is a good question to add to this do you think it would be best servered by removing all traces of the toshiba printer and reinstalling it..
if so can you tell me how to get rid of all the traces of it

thanks

This is the only thing that I could find. But it might be too advanced. Also take a look at the comments near the bottom of the website of this url. But yet again, they suggest using the app that I suggested in their comments. They also suggest another app, you might want to check out.
