|"lost the internet service from AT&T, then when it came back on my computer was messed up"|
There's more going on here than just a printer problem.
Loss of internet service by itself cannot cause the kind of problems you have.
In what other ways was your system "Messed up" ? Why did you lose internet service? Was your system infected by something while you were browsing?
Have you uninstalled the printer software & drivers and started the installation process from scratch? Is there something wrong with the USB port? What if any error messages do you get? Does something appear in Event Logs that might lead to an answer?
