You may need to change PERMISSIONS to allow you FULL Control Try this -

Right-click on the C:\windows\temp folder. Choose "properties," then "security."

You will see a listing that may include, CREATOR OWNER, SYSTEM, Administrators, Users, and Trusted Installer.

Click once on "Users (ie:your pc information\Users)"

In the permissions window below, the Users entry should have all of the same check-marks as the Administrators entry. To add check-marks, Click the "Users" entry once to hi-light it, and click "Edit." Add the needed check-marks. (Example - tick all the boxes - Full control, Modify, Read, Write etc.) then click Apply - OK

I don't mean to hijack your thread but I was thinking of buying one of these printers but have been put off by several people saying that the cost of printing is at least double that of an HP. Any comment or advice?

Try updating the driver via Device Manager - your printer should be listed under USB Controllers - right click - update driver software OR alternatively disable then re-enable.

I wouldn't have thought so - try going to SERVICES - Print Spooler - Stop the Service then Start the Service again. If this doesn't resolve I am wondering if you may be experiencing problems from a print manager list being frozen.

In Windows Vista, you can correct this problem by shutting down the print spooler service. Then search for the directory C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\PRINTERS and delete all of the files in the folder to clear the print queue. Then restart the print spooler service and the problem should be resolved.
