Office Docs, PDFs and IE won't print after latest updat

by friebe13 / July 9, 2009 1:53 AM PDT

2 weeks ago I downloaded latest Windows Update and now my office documents, PDF files, and IE pages won't print.

When I try to print an office document the message I get is:

"Microsoft Office Excel has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
The information you were working on might be lost. Microsoft Office Excel can try to recover it for you.

Please tell Microsoft about this problem.
We have created an error report that you can send to help us improve Microsoft Office Excel. We will treat this report as confidential and anonymous."

I send the info, it closes my document, then it reopens and has different fonts/colors. It will print after I reopen.


When I try to print a webpage or anything off the web:

"Data Execution Prevention - Microsoft Windows
To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program.

Name: Internet Explorer
Publisher: Microsoft Corporation

Data Execution Prevention helps protect against damage from viruses or other threats. Some programs might not run correctly when it is turned on. For an updated version of this program, contact the publisher."


When I try to print a PDF file:

Data Execution Prevention - Microsoft Windows
To help protect your computer, Windows has closed this program.

Name: Adobe Acrobat 8.1
Publisher: Adobe Systems Incorporated

Data Execution Prevention helps protect against damage from viruses or other threats. Some programs might not run correctly when it is turned on. For an updated version of this program, contact the publisher.


I have:
Windows XP SP3
2007 Microsoft Office System
Office 2007 Primary Interop Assemblies
Office 2003 Web Components
Adobe Acrobat 8.1.6 Standard

Can someone give me a hand?

System Restore

I did system restore to a month ago just to make sure.

I couldn't open up IE at all. Just went blank.

I then did system restore to the day before the update downloads and it said it couldn't restore to that day.

I then did system restore to the day of the update and the same things were happening.

Is there anything else I can do?
