Hello everybody. This is my first time posting to a forum of any kind, so please bear with me. I am actually doing this because I can not get my Sony Vaio desktop to read either of my two printers. I always get an error when attempting to download the printers. I have contacted HP for support and also Microsoft. Neither of these helped. Please help me or my wife is going to kill me. (I think I accidentally downloaded a virus I think my spool is corrupted, but I don't have a Windows XP home edition disk to reformat my spool drive. Does anyone know how to get around this? Here is the thread that I think would work. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/919750 Well I am going to bed. Hopefully the little elves will be working long through the night to find a solution to fixing my PC.O.S. and it will be working perfectly tomorrow. j/k.
