My memory for series of letters and numbers has never been too great, but I'm pretty sure MS released a new version of that patch just last night or this morning which is supposed to address some of the problems related to the old version.
Not exactly sure which problems were supposedly fixed, and knowing Microsoft, which new ones were introduced, but it's probably worth a shot.
I use Printer Canon i560
A strange problem appeared recently.
My printer one day refused to do any kind of printing activities from any window application including notepad. Worst than that, it isn?t able to even print a test page. I checked absolutely all settings and wires. I reinstalled all printer drivers from zero. Nothing helped.
Now the most interesting part comes: I can easily do all printer maintenance jobs, which means computer, can freely communicate with printer.
So I am completely puzzled? Computer easily communicates with printer to do all maintenance operations but it isn?t able to even print a test page??
How can that be possible?
Windows application?s behaviour when trying to print is like there isn?t any printer installed or like there is configuration problem in the printer.
Recently because of W32.Sasser.Worm I installed a fresh patch from Microsoft, which is here: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS04-011.mspx
I think the problem is about this recent Microsoft patch installation, cause I noticed that some of my friends started having same problem just after he installed the same patch, and they actually use other printer brands.
Note: I installed printer on other machine that doesn?t have patch installed and printer works fine on that machine.
I want to mention that even if I try to print to a network printer that is installed on a machine which doesn?t have patch installed I still get same think. My computer simply refuses to do any printing activity locally or through network (as does computer of some of my friends that have patch installed) and I am pretty sure that it is all about that patch, after I installed it something went wrong in my operating system, and if I am wrong give me please and advice on that.
Also, since patch installation, on 2 machines already, Windows Media Player can?t detect my CD-RW.
So after all I don?t want to affirm something sure, cause I still have doubts about the reason of all this problems, but 1 think is sure, problems appear on those machines on which I install that security patch.
Tanks a lot!
