Jess :

Customer:

now preparing for system installation

Customer:

has now come up with Certclas.inf:USb.Inf:certclas.inf:USBScan:Certclas.inf:USBPrint:followed by USBTor all in red circles whith white cross which suggests no go

Jess :

What do you mean? Did the installation using the software in your CD did not complete?

Customer:

no did not complete at all after throwing up what I have just described

Jess :

ok....

Jess :

Is the computer that you are installing the software to, connected to the internet wirelessly or wired?

Customer:

No the computer I am using is not connected to the internet wirelessly But wired

Jess :

Ok

Customer:

Although the BT hup I amj using is a wireless Hub

Jess :

In the previous steps that I gave you, regarding connecting the computer to the wireless network, were you able to connect the printer to the wireless network?

Customer:

Yes. It then aske me to install the CD. I have just doubkle checked the Hub and there is an ethernet connection to my tower by USB

Jess :

Ok... Were you asked for the WEP or WPA key to connect?

Customer:

yes and it was entered. when I had problems earlier I had to reset wireless agin and it accepted

Jess :

Ok.... So the problem here is that the installation process did not complete because of an error

Customer:

At the moment the Wireless light is on on the printer

Jess :

Ok... Is the printer connected to the computer through a USB cable or not?

Customer:

Yes it is

Jess :

Ok... Let us now redo the process WITHOUT connecting the printer to the USB

Customer:

I have recently checked the usb ports and according to the system they are OK

Jess :

Please unplug the printer's USB cable from your computer

Jess :

Then let us redo the setup process

Customer:

Ok sorry to be a nuisance

Jess :

That is okay. From the very start, when setting up the wireless printer, you do not need to connect the printer via USB since it will interfere with the wifi setup. I am sorry if I did not remind you of that

Customer:

Ok the printer is connected to wireless. and there is no connection to the pc using usb cable from the printer

Jess :

That is ok.

Jess :

Now, install the printer software. The wireless connection will now suffice

Jess :

During the setup process, when prompted to choose a connection type, select Wireless network connection (802.11) .

Jess :

That is how the wireless connection works this time during the setup

Customer:

I wonder if the microsoft Anti Virus is stopping the installation

Jess :

What happened? Did the installation stop for no reason?

Customer:

Has not come up with wireless network connection

Jess :

What is the screen status now? Installing?

Customer:

Hope you got my last messages re non receipt of wireles network connection

Jess :

What do you mean? What is the status now?

Customer:

It has again thrown up the errors version 5.0.2183 and 5.1.2600.0 from windows inf

Jess :

Ok.... Different error this time?

Jess :

How is it going there?

Customer:

Jess according to my system its faild again

Jess :

Ok... This time, we need to do some cleanup procedures first

Jess :

Before we attempt to reinstall

Jess :

Please follow this CCleaner cleanup procedures

Jess :

Cleanup with CCleaner

NOTE: If you are using a program named Roboform, please do not proceed with CCleaner cleanup. Roboform Data will be removed by CCleaner.

Please download the FREE version of CCleaner from this link:

Download FREE CCleaner Here or this link http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download/standard

After you download the free tool, install it and run the scans and tests. By default, it runs CLEANER to cleanup from all system mess which includes all unwanted files, temporary files, temporary internet files, orphaned files and more. Make sure that all this mess that the Cleaner program has detected is removed. This will free up some space in your hard drive while speeding up your system as well.

Next, run REGISTRY Cleaner and fix the found problems. Run this REGISTRY cleaner several times and fix the issues until no issues will be found.

In order to run the Registry cleanup mode, open CCleaner, then look at the left panel of the CCleaner window. Locate and click the Registry link there and that should give you the Registry cleanup mode. Then click on the Scan for issues button. When the scan reached 100%, click FIX issues to remove the errors from your system. Then click the Scan for issues again then FIX whenever issues are still found. When no issues are found, close CCleaner.

Customer:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
