Print Problem - Ie Prints Pdf File As Mirror Image

When i try to print a pdf file from ie it prints as a mirror image. I can change this in the printer driver, but the next time it will default to mirror printing again. If i copy the file to the desktop, open it from there and print, everything is. I have asked hp (printer manufacturer) and they say that since it prints ok from the desktop, it is not a printer problem.

Print Preview Error - Printing To Adobe Pdf

Print preview error - occurs when printing to adobe pdf print driver. I purchased a new computer with windows 7 pro. When i try to print a web page (ie 8) using print preview, "as selected on screen", shrink to 85%, then print to adobe pdf print driver, the ie 8 page got stuck. So i have to end task it all the time.
 
However, if i try it with different browsers, it prints with no problem. I tried sfc /scannow, checkdisk, disabling add-on programs, but did not work. Add/remove programs does not show ie 8, so i can not uninstall/reinstall it. Is there any way to install ie 8 fresh on windows 7 pro?

Downloading And Viewing A Pdf File

When i log into my utility provider web site to view my bill, internet explorer 8 opens a window and tries to down load the pdf file but just sits doing nothing. I have adobe reader 9 installed and if i try a different browser the pdf file is displayed correctly even with my anti virus active and i can print and save the file so the problem is obviously ie8. I have checked the settings etc but cannot see any thing obvious that is stopping the file from opening. Have tried shutting down my anti virus to see if this is affecting it but it has no effect.

Pdf File Association Not Found In Live Mail

If a message received in live mail on a windows 7 home premium 64 bit machine contains a pdf file attachment, that attachment cannot be opened from live mail. Word file attachments and others can be opened.

When the attempt to open the pdf file attachment is made, the message informs that "this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. " If the file is saved to the local computer, it can be opened normally, as the file association is correct. This is confirmed by typing assoc .pdf in a command window and receiving the response ".pdf=acroexch.document". How can opening pdf documents from live mail be accomplished without saving them first.

Printer Problem - Print Job In Print Queue Is Preventing Other Print Jobs

Cannot print from new laptop to shared printer - "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing". I recently bought a new laptop and want to print to a printer (hp color laserjet 1600) i have shared over the network from a windows 7 (x64) machine. When i try to print from my laptop it stays in the print queue and i have to run the troubleshooter on the host computer to resolve the issue and allow it to print.

If i run the troubleshooter on the laptop it tells me it could not identify the problem while on the host it tells me "a print job in the print queue is preventing other print jobs from printing" and it says it fixed the problem and prints the document but i have to do this every time. I also have this printer added to a laptop and a netbook and they both print the document just fine and have no issues. The laptop i am having the problems is running windows 7 (x64).

Hp Inkjet 2230 Printer - Print Jobs Stuck In Print Queue

Print jobs stuck in the print queue and will not print on windows 7 64-bit driver for hp business inkjet 2230 printer. I have installed the current hp universal printing pcl 5 driver on my windows 7 64-bit os. When i try to print a test page on my hp business inkjet 2230 printer (usb to parallel cable connection) the job hangs in the print queue. I can run the troubleshooter and purge the spooler but then i'm back where i started. The next print command will result in the same error.

This appears to have also been a problem with windows vista (64-bit). Suggestions to remedy the problem are welcomed.

Stops Opening Pdf Files From Website

My customer runs this site built in frontpage and maintained by godaddy (http://courthousecowboysrunamuk.net/) about 2 weeks ago the page started freezing up after opening and closing pdf documents. Only after about 5 or more times of trying them. Random links from the site. Not the same one every-time. The customer is running xp. The problem does not occur on other sites. I have uninstalled and reinstalled adobe reader. I have disabled and re-enabled the add on in ie.

I booted with all but windows processes disabled and startup extras disabled. The problem still occurred. I made sure all windows, ie, and adobe updates were present. I tried the same on another xp pc and the same problem occurred. It does not occur on windows 7 computers. Do not have a vista in the office to try. Am going to uninstall updates from an xp computer to see if that fixes it, but any other ideas?

Cannot Access Temp Folder For .pdf Creator

This is a new pc installed with windows 7 basic i installed a physical printer via usb no problem , then tried to install a .pdf creator to send statements from a rental program. On installation and opening the .pdf creator program i receive an error that it does not have permission to open the temp folder.

I then also tried to install a second printer via usb but constantly receive the message usb device not recognized! And the printer cannot be found or installed. The .pdf creator should create a pdf printer under printers but it hasn't. I was convinced after scouring countless forums  that the two problems were linked and had to do with -user account control settings - alas after disabling it no luck neither will work.

I have tried the following rebooted countless times unplugging the pc turned uac off and on with reboots in between and attempting .pdf creator install and the second usb printer install with this setting on and off with no luck.

Checked the register entry for uac to ensure it was totally disabled checked that the second usb samsung printer is 100% compatible with windows 7 downloaded the latest .pdf creator installation files rolled back all the windows 7 updates with a system restore uninstall all the usb drivers which then reinstalled on reboot. Tried to manually add the samsung printer using add printer
I am now at a loss and am convinced the two problems are linked.

When we click on various links such the bill pay link on our credit union site, nothing happens when we do it on our desktop pc. There is no message, box or anything . Just no response whatsoever.

I spent a couple of hours trying to figure out and so far am totally unsuccessful. Both pcs are new and run widnows 7. Do you have any suggestions?

Printing To Email From Word Perfect Or Pdf Files

After the recent automatic upgrades to my computer, it's changed a lot of things about the start up. I don't like them but can live with them if i have to, although i don't see why i should. I had no problems like this with my xp system. It was much more stable and i didn't have to do cartwheels every time i started it up. I absolutely hate windows 7.

Also, after the upgrades went into effect, i could not open and print word perfect documents or pdf files from e-mail when i could before. I have word perfect and adober acrobat on my computer. What did you change and how do i fix your problem?

Print Jobs Sent Do Not Print

After installing win 7 ultimate, my hp f4180 all-in-one stopped working. Test print jobs were sent to the printer, the printer icon appeared in the taskbar, but no documents showed up in the print queue. Nothing printed. A very lengthy session with hp support did the following:

- Reinstalled the win 7 driver
- Deleted the printer and then added it back
- Confirmed that the printer could print a test page from its own controls
- Stopped and restarted the spooler

The computer recognizes the printer in the device manager and says it's working properly.

Pdf Printer Not Showing In Printer List

I have now spent countless hours trying to resolve using acrobat 9 standard (updated now to 9. 3. 3) with windows 7 professional on a new 64bit dell laptop. Originally, all of my printers would disappear once i opened a pdf. I uninstalled the reader that i had downloaded prior, also restored my system to a previous date and reinstalled the acrobat. Seemed ok for a couple of weeks until i lost all printers again. Now i have uninstalled all adobe products and reinstalled 9. 0 (it wanted my code for 6. 0 also) downloaded and installed all updates sequentially and now i see all but the pdf printer. I am not very computer savvy, and this is absolutely frustrating me.

Live File System Will Not Save File

Live file system will not save file!Windows 7 and udf will copy several files and then you get to the last file which is 700 meg and the space free bar under the dvd rw drive shows 1. 2 gig left. The copy starts and runs till about 350 meg left then it slows down all the way to 17 kbs and also till 10 k was left on the dvd. By this time about 5 hrs have gone by and the copy window has showed 1 hr left for 3 hrs. The cancel button won't work task manager when used will crash the system. You can force a shut down but then you have to reactivate norton with your purchase code. A search of the internet for me was no help at all.

How Do I Open A File As A Zip File?

I work with an application that packages files into "zipped folders" (yeah, just zip files), but uses a different file extension. It works exactly like . Gadget (windows gadgets) and . Themepack (windows themes) files work: you can rename them to .zip and open them with the zip viewer.

I want to skip the step of renaming it each time. I want to just associate the files with the zip viewer. In fact i don't need to associate it, just open-with a single time: i know if i can do it once, it will always be an available option on the right-click context menu of the files.

But i can't find which program is associated with zip files. I tried searching the system-32 folder.

Cannot Print Anything

I have windows 7 home premium 64 bit (dell inspiron 537s, if that makes a difference). My problem is that i can't print. Anything. It doesn't matter if i try to print to a physical printer, or if i try to create a pdf file using the adobe pdf printer. Nothing prints. There are no error messages popping up when i try to print. It just doesn't print. When i go to the printer settings, i can see the documents in the queue with "error", but that's it.

Here's the thing that stands out. Whenever i right-click on the printer and select properties, i'm not getting the usual 5-10 tabs. I'm only seeing two:  general and hardware (and nothing else). It doesn't matter if it's the physical printer, adobe pdf printer, or the windows fax device, i get the same odd properties display.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. At this point, i'm about ready to reinstall windows 7, but i'm hoping there's something simpler i'm missing.
