when i try and print from word or any application it does not print, the printer icon in the task bar doesnt appear and when i try and click on the printer app in control panel explorer crashes and the screen goes blank and then eventually goes back to the desktop with nothing open!when i restart if i open the printer app straight away i can then print! but it has to be the first thing i do, if i open word then open that it wont work and the same happens again! iv tried reinstalling the drivers for the printer and all the printer software but its made no difference! the printer is a epson stylus PHOTO R300. any ideas people?

Have you tried deleting all the printer software and re-installing EXACTLY according to the instructions.

Epson "R" printers are exceptionally fussy about being installed correctly.
