Question

What is a : Desktop P9EFSHV

I went to uninstall a printer and noticed this icon in Devices & Printers. Desktop P9EFSHV, and it had a "big" yellow triangle on it. When you 'hover' the mouse over it, it shows: Status - driver error. My computer seems to be working fine, so what is this. Dell Inspiron 3647 desktop computer. Went to 'device manager' and did not see any 'yellow' triangle's.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions,
Eddie

One of the lessons over the years is

That Windows is like that. I do not fix every "error" I find. Microsoft still has years to go if maybe never to get to where it's perfect.

Not going for perfect

Since I hadn't seen this before, wanted to know if I should be concerned. For all "I" know this could be some kind of malware or worst, maybe someone is trying to 'hack' into my computer. Doubtful for sure, but. So is it safe to 'delete' this "icon". FYI, ran a "full" scan, with Windows Defender, yesterday, in safe mode, this was before I noticed this "icon", today.

Thanks for replying

Here I have my laptop and

Under properties it's description reads "unavailable." That's a cosmetic bug. But I can see why folk today will question every thing.
