Printer Default

  amonra 18:43 25 Nov 2007

My daughter has two printers installed on her system (XP Dell Desktop) HP Photosmart 380 and HP Deskjet F2100. We set the F2100 as default, but as soon as you turn your back, the default has switched back to the 380. This can happen within 30 seconds or so, without any other action taking place.
I have gone through all the obvious settings but to no avail. Has anyone any ideas as to what's causing the switch ??

Are both printers connected to the computer when you boot up? Does this happen in a particular program? Foe example, I use a CD printing program and no matter what the default is will always default to my Canon printer. To change this I would have to got to File>Page Setup and change it there.
