hp 1005 printer on windows 8

My HP P1005 printer, previously running successfully on Windows 7, was identified as compatible with Windows 8.  It has not been possible to print from Windows 8 on this printer.  An attempt to delete the printer, and then reinstall, was not successful - Windows 8 does not complete the deletion of the printer.

How can I:

(1) Delete the printer, and/or
(2) Get the HP1005 to print from Windows 8? 

Thanks,

Alan Baker

DANGER!!!!! SOS!!!!! MAYDAY MAYDAY

I ran the programlink:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?cc=br&lc=pt&dlc=pt&softwareitem=bi-54963-6
More than 100Mbyte was downloaded. When I ran the exe the installation of the printer started, but failed. BUT after 2 days I disvovered that met C-drive was renamed with a named I could recogniszed to be linked to the above program. In a first attempt I couldn´t rename it back. First I had to delete all files I could link to HP, after that I could rename my C-drive. At the end I was reassured, oufoef... but it took me several hours to discover the solution. So down´t make the same attempt as I did!!!!!!
