Question about Computers & Internet
I recently installed a Lexmark x7675 printer and now there seems to be some kind of conflict with the drivers. Windows starts up normally, but I'm unable to open up any programs except for Outlook. Everything else gets stuck - in Task Manager, I can see them start to load, i.e. Firefox, but nothing will fully open. It's only after I close the printer spooler that the system "releases" and allows other programs to start. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Lexmark drivers several times, but it's to no avail. Anyone seen this problem before?
I had this problem after installing the X7675 and then removing the X7675 startup programs. (I dont use the printer very often so I did not want the processes running until I needed them.) Problem is the Lexmark install maded the Services process dependent on the Spooler. After the change the Spooler was not starting. The Services the waited about 15 minutes before starting.
This link explains how to edit the registry to eliminate the dependency.
It fixed my problem immediately.
