PC won't let me Set a Default Printer ?

I have 2 printers installed on my PC.
They both work when printing photos,web pages and wordpad letters but when I want to use a Desktop Publishing Program like 'Microsoft Picture It' or 'Publish It' they tell me I need to setup a default printer.

OK,easy enough - set the default printer from the control panel>Printers and Faxes>Right Click>set as default printer

...and nothing !

Windows won't let me set either printer as a default.

I have Windows XP SP2 and have tried the latest printer drivers aswell as reinstalling the old ones - nothing.

Can anyone solve this for me please ?

PictureIt will only print projects.

It won't print my Picture It projects !

If it does, it's just 'Picture It' with it's quirky printing method. Create a project with the item you want to print and try it then.

I can print OK. How about uninstalling one printer and see what happens then?
