One of the PC in our Workgoup having WindowMe. When the system start it gives message HPFwin16.dll is missing or corupt to add 690C V1.1 printer. Actually this printer is no more in the network. And the machine which had this printer before already disconnected and had removed it from the printer folder. The question is why this computer at start up adds this printer automatically. If I restart this computer again it adds another printer(i.e. Copy 2) of the same model.
After uncheck internat.exe in startup of msconfig the message no more appear at startup but stubornly adds the printer.
Help and tips welcome and thanks

I would advise editing the registry and removing all references to this printer. Obviously there is a call to this printer

HP is a real pain. I've had luck reinstalling the driver, which involves a reboot, and then using the built in uninstall to remove the driver entirely. It doesn't matter that the printer is gone.

Its a 16 bit dynamic link library. I think this is a Hewlette Packard (HP) dll interface, so were you trying to print when the error occurred? Try to uninstall all the printer drivers. Then reinstall it from the Printer driver CD.
