What is a : Desktop P9EFSHV

by edwardnav / December 12, 2016 8:28 AM PST

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,

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.

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.

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

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
