Can't finish 1st page of wireless printing after anti-spy & anti-virus renewal

I appreciate you patience in reading the following. I've started to blame TrendMicro's renewal of their AntiVirus software. Yes. their new version now has ant-spy, too. Do you know of any conflicts? After all, last year at this time, BestBuy/Geeks were installing Webroot's anti-spy and TrendMicro's Anti-Virus. With that quantity of separate programs on so many machines, certainly my issue can't be that unique. I'd like to think that my renewal from two different vendors for different applications; 1=anti-spy, 2=anti-virus; would still work.

This is what I sent TrendMicro & Webroot.

Despite successful download and installation upon subscription renewals, I am conviced one of the new versions is failing to allow wireless print jobs to finish. They now hang up with only one or two lines left. I am set up to print wireless. I was printing completely successfuly with this system before the aformentioned installations, for which I did temporarily disable the UAC for TrendMicro. Nothing has changed in my system since that successful print before installations. I have restored the UAC. Hence my suspicion of one of these new versions. I print via NetGear RangeMax WPN824 v2 router and D-Link DPR-1260 print server to HP OfficeJet 5610 All-in-one.

Printing is perfectly fine via hard-wire USB connection.
I deleted the D-Link Print server and re-installed it, two ways…
1. With UAC still active, I received three warning messages…
a. One was some OS error, or something
b. One was from TrendMicro saying that the D-Link install setup was a potential threat. When I selected the option to trust and run (actual message was probably different), nothing happened, except
c. …Windows detected that something did not install properly. I received a Windows message to that effect, and a subsequent question if I wanted to proceed with its recommended fix. I chose to do so, but nothing happened.
d. … I still failed to print an entire sheet.
2. With UAC inactive, everything appeared to work, as no messages appeared. I did not do the prompted test print. Nonetheless, the subsequent print failed identically.

    Forget this posting. I still have a problem, but the above/earlier discussion is no longer accurate. I will re-post

    D-Link actually suggested this, and it worked...

    Re-Install D-Link Print Server with alternative step-by-step methods, in lieu if D-Links self-installer.

My Dell Inspiron E1505 will be on for half an hour to an hour before Windows Explorer (and pretty much everything else) stops responding and I'm forced to turn it off. I've run registry cleaner,...


Hi vincent172...
I think you have a virus,worm,trojan,etc on your computer.
Go to the following website and download,install and run the FREE Microsoft Safety Scanner.
It will remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer.
It may take quite a while to finish, it all depends on the size of your hard drive.
Once the Microsoft Safety Scanner is completed running, it should have removed the virus,trojan,worm,etc. from you computer, but if it didn't remove the virus,trojan,worm,etc from your computer then it will give you an option to connect (real time) with a Microsoft professional (FREE) and he will take over control of your computer (with you permission) and finish the removal process.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

I cannot open attachments virus scanner is currently not availabl


That is probably because a virus had corrupted the Norton Antivirus installed on your computer, or because the antivirus has expired.
Do the following:

  1. Check that Antivirus is not to be renewed
  2. Reinstall the Antivirus.
  3. Contact symantech
Here is the contact page:
Contact us - Symantec Corp.

SpySweeper Anti Virus conflicts with Trend Micro AntiVirus


I would remove Spy Sweeper and Trend Micro. Then I would install the free versions of AVG, Ad-aware 2008, WinPatrol SpyBlaster and ScrubXP .

I have been using this combo for years and have had no problems as long as you keep them updated.

AVG is good anti virus software which do not slow your system down and they do a free version, SuperAntispyware is also a good spyware program and again it's free.
If you google these you'll find them easy enough.

well you have many problems at the moment ,but my first efforts would be to run anti spy ware and anti virus program as they can do strange things to a computer, you can get both free from GRISOFT "AVG"

another option is to use the recovery disc's to re-install all the software back to the factory settings,as this will install all the drivers again for your sound & wifi and everything else.

good luck
