After I print a document I can not seem to print anything else. A little picture of a printer appears in the bottom right tray and when I click on it it shows all the document in a queue and at the top it shows the first document I printed saying status deleting - printed. I have tried right click / cancel but it does not seem to remove the old document. I have also tried uninstalling / installing the printer to no avail.
I only have 1 printer connected.
Any help would be much appreciated. I think it all starting after using regscrub xp but used regscrub for weeks without any probs so may not be. ta
Ok - followed all steps. completed sfc / scannow and changed as recommended D:\ to the 1386 file C:\. Ran and at the end nothing happened. Rebooted a couple of times and noticed that after a reboot it prints a 1 page document that I have been trying to print then prints a blank page then blocks all other documents from printing ! still got the little picture in the bottom right tray and still can not deleted / cancel the top document ( which says deleting - printed pages 2/2 when it is only a 1 page document ) .
Sometimes the print message panel takes a little while to delete a just printed document (at least it does with my Epson R300) - I think part of the problem may be that photo printers have to perform two roles i.e. text and photo printing.
The R300 also takes quite a while to get its act together from being switched on and then print out a document.
ok thanks to all. After following ALL STEPS and unistalling and reinstalling again at last the printer seems to be working fine.
Do you think it was regscrub xp that could have caused it ? I never really know what it is doing. It makes my computer operate much quicker though . Is there another cleaner that is less aggressive ? Or are cleaners not for the novice ?
