seems to be the only thing you have not tried. When did the problem actually start? Was it straight after the .8 update or before? Can it be linked to any of the recent updates. If not, then the Archive and install may well be the way to go.
Interesting name..European connotations??
Came across an interesting problem with a flat pannel iMac (10.3. at work. Every time a user tries to print something, instead of the print dialog coming up, the application crashes. Every application, not just specific ones.
All printers are HP LaserJets, and all printing is done via TCP/IP.
So far things tried include deleting and re-adding the printer. Updating the drivers from HP's website. Running a printer repair program, and running the full (103MB) 10.3.8 updater.
Anyone here have any other ideas of things that might be tried?
