Unable to print from IE7

  1. I have an Acer laptop with Vista and IE7, a few days ago it stopped printing from webpages, it happily prints from other programs so it doesn't appear to be a printer problem. I installed Firefox and it happily prints websites so I am baffled,
    I have reloaded the printer drivers and reset IE7 to no avail.
    Has anyone any suggestions?

    How to use Reset Internet Explorer Settings (RIES)

    To use RIES in Internet Explorer 7, follow these steps:

    1. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.
    2. On the Advanced tab, click Reset.
    3. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
    4. When Internet Explorer 7 finishes restoring the default settings, click Close, and then click OK two times.
    5. Close Internet Explorer 7. The changes take effect the next time that you open Internet Explorer 7.

    Note for users who cannot start Internet Explorer 7 for some reason, use RIES from Internet Options in Control Panel.

    Thanks kimsland but I have already tried that and it didn't help.

    Download Internet Explorer 7 again and re-install it.
    You may be able to uninstall the present IE7 in add/remove programs before re-install
