    Hi,

    Have used word 2000 daily at home ever since it came out & the last 2-3 days it freezes when I go Files>Print & so am unable to alter things in printing all other functions in File work OK.

    I can print OK via the print icon.

    Uninstalled MS Office & reinstalled it with no effect. ...thanx ...nick

    PS. Also 1. when I open word it tries to configure itself then says Error it is not functioning use Repair and it opens & works OK except for the "File>Print issue mentioned above"

    2. Deleted the two small programs recently installed

    3. recently installed my old Epson c48 & when it did not work I deleted it.

    Home build, Asus P5K Premium WiFiiFi Intel,
    Intel Core 2 Quad Pro Q6600 95W 2.4GHz, OCZ Vendetta Cpu Cooler,
    2x2GB, 240-pin DIMM, DDR2 800 (400mhz) PC2-6400,

    Sounds a bit like lag from trying to communicate with a network printer?

    I would try a full driver removal using print management (MMC), then re-install the printer, this normally clears this issue.

    I installed a new driver.

    How do I remove it with MMC?

    I have no cd forn the printer, it installed itself when I connected the USB cable.
