Windows XP SP3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently upgraded to windows XP SP3 to use microsoft outlook 2010.  The installation seemed to go fine or at least it completed and rebooted my computer.  Now every time I try to print something no matter what program I'm running word, excel, autocad it takes several minutes for the printer popup and then when I select a printer again it takes several minutes to recognize the selection, but then it prints.  Today I had a system lock up and the error message was SAS window: winlogon.exe corrupt file.  Upon rebooting the computer it ran a check disk and fixed a couple of errors, but still the same printing problem?

    Any ideas why?

    Thanks

  • Sometimes a device driver can be adversely affected by the installation of a Windows Service Pack: I had the same kind of problem after installing SP3 on my Windows XP system, the Wi-Fi network card program always displays an error message whenever the system starts.
    You could check the printer's manufacturer web site to see if a new and updated driver is available or completely remove the printer drivers and software, reboot the system and install them again.

    Bye.
