Uninstalled SP3

I posted on here that I had a problem printing to my network printer since installing SP3. Well, I uninstalled SP3 and guess what... I can print again!!

It baffles me how thinks like this happen?

This is obviously a temp fix because sooner or later I will have to accept SP3, but does anyone know how I can avoid this problem in the future?

Where did you install your SP3 from? I installed mine from VoG's link in this thread click here, it went perfectly with no problems at all.

I think that you will need to give us some more details about your printer and how it is networked. I have installed SP3 through the MS update and my networked printer works fine.

Its a brother HL-2070n Laser printer. I have a small workgroup, using a 5 port netgear switch.

Since I uninstalled SP3 it works fine.

Any ideas?

Just realised that you have another thread running on the same subject which is confusing. click here

Wonder if it is altering the firewall settings eg Windows firewall.
