Programs go not responding when clicking File -> Print RRS feed

  • Question

  • When clicking File -> Print on Word, Adobe PDF reader and Internet Explorer (but works fine in Excel) the program goes not responding, eventually the print window loads, but goes very very slow from there on, regularly hanging. On Word and IE specifically, a small box flashes up with a message and goes before I get a chance to read it.

    I have tried repairing Office, virus scans, CCleaner, driver updates and reinstalls for printers, disabled no windows services. Nearly everything short of reinstalling windows.

    Anyone got any ideas. This user has had a large number of problems in the past with Office.

  • I sorted the issue, really strange, but all i needed to do was select a default printer from the list of network printers as one wasnt selected already. Very very strange
