Hello,
I have installed Internet Explorer 8 onto my system (XP-SP3) and now I cannot get anything to print from the Internet. This is VERY frustrating as I collect a lot of info from the 'Net. I have tried uninstallingt IE8, but this has not fixed the problem, IE7 worked for a while and then stopped working, so I re-installed IE8 so that at least I can access the Internet. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

hi,

IE8 is meant for vista users.

go back to IE7 or try to do a system restore.

You can do one thing go to tools -> internet options -> security tab -> uncheck : Enable protected mode
and then reopen a new internet explorer and try to print now



Alternatively try to reregister thecomplete set of the internet files

Separately you can register the dll files
by goint go command prompt and then
use the following commands:

regsvr32 actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 ole32.dll
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
