To start the uninstallation procedure click on the Yes button.

Important! For newer models installed on Microsoft Windows Vista, 7, and 8, a User Account Control (UAC) for Lexmark International Inc. will pop up. Click Yes to allow uninstallation.

If you installed the printer drivers via the Install CD from the box, then Abbyy Fine Reader will be installed as well, and it will not be deleted when you are uninstalling the Lexmark Printer.
