Hi, Operating System does not respond is the major problem. This is a very commonly faced error by the users of the Windows 7 which leads to the Blue Screen of death to the system. The error message appears on the computer screen in the following form: "Windows Operating System is not responding" along with two options one "Close the Program" and other "Wait for the program to respond".

And also informs you to create a rule Say Windows Live ----- "WLM is attempting to connect to the web" <Program path> [X] [X] ------ Make sure it is a program that YOU installed. not your computer. Best of luck. Tom.
hello, do you use any antivirus program or firewall program? if so try to close them and try the printing. if that works you need to allow some ports in your firewalls.
you can also try to go start->run and write "cmd" hit enter then write in the black command prompt ipconfig. look for you ip adress should be like 192.168.x.x check both computers IP. try to ping the other: write in the command prompt "ping 192.168.x.x" and see if the other computer answers. get back to me and explain your network little bit more. have your printer ever worked?
