i hope i have titled this enough to get some advice, all updates on pc etc, this morning i typed a letter and went to print it off and was given the message of unable to find default printer, checked all connections and rebooted still same,looked in control panel/printers and it was empty, tried system restore to 4 different dates and failed each time, did restore in safe mode and it worked, went to printers etc in control panel and i now have four!! 2 paperport and two epson with one as default and all now ok, does anyone have an idea why?

after yet another restore i decided to go looking myself in the absense of forum help and started in event viewer which confuses me even more ie sytem events shows them ocurring as 2007 application errors are 2006 lates precede by several with dates in 2074 antivirus viewer is correct and up to date, there must be someone with an idea?
