Go to the Contol Panel, Printers and Faxes in XP. Choose your printer, in the
pop-up that opens for your printer click "printer" then "printing preferences.
You'll find the maintenance tab is the last tab on this.

Hope this helps anyone else having the same problem. It is at least how I was
able to access the print utility.

I had the same problem.
Try - Click Start
Click Devices & printers
Click printing Prefences
Click Maintenance.
You can then check print heads and clean them
