Unable to view printer properties in Win

By Dahoove ·
We have a 3 pc running Windows 2000 Pro, when you install a network printer and try to look at the printers properties, Windows closes the printer window, printer folder and seems to crash explorer (the desktop refreshes itself). Does this with ot without virus software running, and does it on printers are shared on a NT server and ones that run on a Novell 5 print server. The printers print I just can't turn off the network notice it sends after a print job has been sent and get into other properties settings

Unless this is occurring on different types of printers, you need to obtain an updated driver for the printer. Win2K is VERY driver picky and the wrong driver will produce very strange problems.

Using the latest drivers for the printer which is a Hp 6MP. Problem occurs with drivers that are on the Win2k cd and the HP website.

If you are still tackling this problem, perhaps you should consider calling your local super-hero.
