Removing lexpps.exe after changing printers

by SorrelAQHA / January 24, 2008 9:48 AM PST

I recently removed a Lexmark printer from my computer, but I do not know how to remove the lexpps.exe file which is still on the computer, and still requesting internet access. The computer runs Windows XP.

I'd appreciate any help you can give me!

1. Simply rename the file and see if you get an error message.
2. Find out where it's started from (somewhere in the registry, I assume) and remove that.

It's some trial and error, I'm afraid. Don't do anything you can't turn back.

Rename LEXBCE.EXE & LEXPPS.EXE in windows/system32
by Ron Cook / July 7, 2008 1:52 AM PDT

I was having the same problem when I located the LEXBCE & LEXPPS files in my windows system32 folder. I changed the file extension from .EXE to .OLD and it solved my problem. I also located LexBce Server running in my Services. Check the following link for instructions on how to remedy that situation.

Best wishes,
