There may be no real clean way.

Dunno what you mean server tab?

The connector is of little importance.

You may need to use add and remove programs or use uninstaller for the products you installed and delete driver or uninstall driver.
Even doing all that sometimes the registry gets off and you may have to edit that but that is very rare. Most cases the registry settings remain and it doesn't show up or matter to anything.

I saw the Drivers under Printers - File- Server Properties. After using Revo Uninstall it still shows the (now missing) Brother printer on LPT1 (sigh). Not sure we need to clean it out of the Registry but would like the remnants to be removed and it still shows the Icon for the Brother Printer, now described as "deleting" and "offline". Do they have nine lives? Thanks - we did "Uninstall" but it appears that doesn't get it all.

Many times you cannot remove it from the server tab until you clean it out of the registry. Depending on how comfortable you feel about editing the registry, you can do a search for the printer, remove all instances, then uninstall it in the list from the print server tab. You my want to do a backup of your registry before you start editing it.
