    Is it only when you are using that printer (is this the onlly printer you have connected to this computer) or is it just Word/Windows hanging up? If it is the latter, you may need to defragment your HD, you may have a virus or malware, etc.

How long has it been since you defragmented your hard drive?

Start - My Computer - then Right-Click on your C drive and click on Properties.

Click on the Tools tab. I suggest you click on Check Now, then click both boxes and click "OK". It should tell you it cannot complete the task, tell it to check the next time you reboot.

Then reboot and let it scan your hard drive. It will reboot when it is done.

Then back into Start - My Computer - Right-Click on C, click on Properties. Then on the Tool tab, click on Defragment Now and let it finish.

Then try opening a Word DOC and see if it is any better. You may want to reboot again.

You should have about a half a gig (512MB) of RAM in XP, or 1Gig in Vista. And at least 10 times that free in your hard drive.

What version of Windows, how much RAM, and how much free hard drive space is there?

I can't seem to open attachments on my mac, it looks like something is happening and then I can't find the file to print it...I am a new user and confused

If they are pdf attachments, then you have to download the free adobe reader or update your adobe version.  If they are word docs, then you should have a word comparable software to open it up.
Change your settings to download the document on your desktop instead of in a folder so that you can always find the doc to print.  Then you can drag the doc off the desktop and into what ever folder you like.  Also, just type the name of the doc in the search window and all the docs with that name will show up.

My Epsom S20 printer takes ages to respond to Word

Are you using the correct driver for it?
to find the driver open printers and faxes right click the desired printer, go to properties.
Click on advanced tab and check the driver there. It should match the model of the printer.
If it does the driver may be corrupted.
The uninstall current driver( the install Cd that came with printer should have uninstall option there) then reinstall it again.
This should fix the problem.

Try this !
in the software application you are printing from
Open the document that you want to print.
2. On the File menu, click Print, and then click Setup, Properties, or Preferences.

Look for a Best Mode Setting
this printer has several modes one being draft mode, another one best mode
in best mode the printer uses memory to render the photo you are trying to print.
Note that in this mode, printing takes
longer and more memory is required from your computer.
from page 17 of the hp k5400 user manual

Also you may have to increase the virtual memory of the windows pc to allow the computers hard drive to allocate more hard drive memory to the memory swap file if the computer's ram is not enough to print the photo.
It is a setting in the control panel under system - performance.
