At first I thought it was only my printer......uninstalled the drivers, reinstalled.......etc. Then I tried to print as an XPS document and I get the same error messages. Example error message from Excel is "Your file could not be printed due to an error on Microsoft XPS Document writer". If I try the printer I get the exact same message. From Firefox I get "An unknown error occurred while printing." I have searched everywhere for a solution, I even restored as far back as I could but that was only a month ago. I can print from Notepad and Internet Exporer, both on the printer and XPS Document writer, I can also print a test page and an alignment page. Any ideas?

Solutions tried so far......

Malware scan, troubleshooter, reinstall of MS Office 2010, printer port checks, uninstall and reinstall of USB printer.

I just tried an Office printing troubleshooter page, it had me install a generic printer and try to print.....would not "print" or save the file in either Excel or Word

It seems that nobody else can solve this riddle either. I will leave this thread open and check in tomorrow. Hopefully somebody out there knows what the issue is. Thanks again!
