    I am having problems printing off of a disk, when I go to print a document a dialog box comes up saying that there is an error in spooling........ and when I click ok another box comes up saying that I have performed an illegal operation. I was told that the disk had gremlins in it before and I have never heard of that before. Can it be fixed? :confused:

    Are you saying that if you copy the file from the diskette to the hard drive and then print it, you don't get this error? Are you further saying that any diskette placed into your floppy drive produces the same problem?

    If the answer to both those questions is truly yes, I'd go ahead and drop the five bucks it'll cost you to replace that floppy drive. If, however, the answer to either one is no, well, pitch that diskette and start over.
