Drivers are used by Windows 7 to communicate with various hardware devices connected to your computer, such as printers and scanners. Printer manufacturers include drivers with their products, but they also update older drivers to improve their performance and add new features. You must use the Device Manager utility to obtain the most recent version of the driver, roll back the driver to an earlier version, or even remove the driver. Sometimes reverting the printer driver solves issues introduced by a new driver version.
