Can't print from applications?


Well-Known Member
This is a strange one and I fear I may have to reinstall Win 7 and a few dozen programs.

This is my main PC at my home office, running Win 7 pro. I have several printers installed:(Two on USB ports and one wireless Canon- and a few virtual printers like Snagit and PDF995).

I can print the "printer test page" from the control panel/devices and printers to any printer installed.

I cannot print to any printer from an application (Word, Photoshop, Notepad). The application crashes.

I've tried clearing the spooler folder. stop and restart the spooler service, remove and reinstall one of the Epson printers. No change.

Any tips would be appreciated.
