reboot to print

Hi all,
I am having an issue printing wirelessly from a Vista Laptop (Home Premium 64bit version). Here is the network setup..... Win Vista Laptop wireless, Win 7 Laptop wireless, Win XP desktop with Canon MX700 printer wired to desktop (Desktop hardwired to TrendNet router).

I have no problem printing wirelessly from the Win 7 laptop or hardwired XP desktop. However the XP laptop is a different story. When I first turn on the laptop it prints fine...after a while using the laptop it will no longer print. If I reboot, it will print fine at first then after a while the same problem occurs.

I have no idea where to start. Any help would be appreciated.

Just fixed one like that.

It was Symantec's Norton. It was close to expiry and begin to get one hour then close down the network connections. Fix? Used Symantec's Norton removal tool. All better.

Found something else to use in its place.

Remember this is one of many ideas you should get on this one.

Thanks for the reply. I am using Trend Micro internet security on this machine. I will definetly look into seeing if it might be causing the problems
