Printer Delay

  1. For some reason every time I click to print no matter what software I am using it takes 30 secs - 1 min to pull up the printer properties. I believe this started happening after I installed service pack 3. I'm not sure how to handle this issue can someone please help me trouble shoot it?

    Simple answer - uninstall that pile of ordure called SP3

    If this is new behavior since you installed SP3, do a System Restore to date right before you got SP3 OR uninstall it in Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel.

    Another consideration, based on my experience. My printer has USB 2 capabilities. But it is connected to a USB 1 port. So there is a slight delay when I give the print command.
