Disconnect the printer when reinstalling, then follow the manufacturer's
recommended setup procedure after installation is complete. You should
install updates identified as critical, and then any of the optional ones
that you deem important (none of those are required, but some add function
to features you may wish to use). Install driver updates sparingly, and
preferably directly from the component manufacturer.
