Unable to print from hotmail : lexplore error

  1. I have been recently getting an error when trying to print a mail using the Hotmail print option/icon ( Windows Live).

    I don't get this error when using the printer from Word or when printing a selection from a web page.

    Error msg : 'lexplore has performed an illegal operation and will shut down.'

    I have been advised by Howard to post here, as it doesn't appear to be a virus/malware problem.

    O/S : Win 98SE (with all critical updates)
    Printer : Epson Stylus C58.
    CPU : Pentium III, 450Mhz.

    Had reformatted just about a week ago. Printer is about 8 months old.

    Didn't have this problem before.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Pls let me know if more info is required.

    Windows Live may not work with 98SE?
    Most newer programs require XP sp2
    Windows Live just came out of beta and is now "Live"

    Yes, I was using the beta version earlier.

    I'll try to get info from Live Mail support.

    Thanks for the line of thought.
