restore usbstor.inf

ok so I bought a new HP printer and am trying to install it however it tells me my file usbstor.inf does not exist or has been deleted. I have searched and cannot find this file. How do I restore the file so that I can install my printer?
Answer
Answer
Go to C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository and look for one or two folders with the name usbstor.inf_xxxxxxxx. Use the one in the folder with the latest date and copy both the usbstor.inf and usbstor.PNF files to C:\Windows\inf.
