one of my computers has this problem.
All r configured the same way.
W7, one user, Admin, on C drive
All other users on D drive
All systems r up to date.
Network printer hard wired to router.
All have the same printer drivers installed.
I believe the following symptoms r correct, but I may have missed something.
It is all very confusing.
Logged on as a std or admin user (not Admin) When I try to print from this one, from Word, Excel, Outlook, Wordpad, or a PDF file the job flashes in the print queue for 1/2 sec and nothing happens - no print. Any TXT file will print. JPEG files will print from MSO OIS or Windows Picture Viewer. If I try the same thing from the Admin user all the files print. When the files print, they show in the print queue for 3-5 sec.
If I change ALL the font in the file I am trying to print to Caslon.... the file will print. This includes XLSX files. There r a few fonts I can use that will print. I have not figured out how to get PDFs to print. If there is ONE character that is, say, Times New Roman it will not print.
Printer driv has been reinstalled 4 times.
MSO has been reinstalled.
Again, this problem does not exist on the other systems.
Data entry in the reg has been deleted.
Normal.dotx has been replaced.
I prefer not to have to reinstall W7 for what appears to be a registry issue.
