I want you to do a system restore please to undo any corruption that has occurred.
Can you close all programs
Click start, and type in
system restore
then press enter
Follow the onscreen steps and perform a restore, choosing a restore date when the printer was last working.
Let this complete and when you have, tell me if it now allows you to print.
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
