    Can't Print In Outlook Express

    I cannot print in IE or Outlook Express at all. When i click on an email or web page to print it out, and click print, nothing whatsoever happens. No error message, the computer wurrs momentarily but that is it.

    I am running Windows 98, have an HP Deskjet 720 with version 10.3 Drivers. These are as up to date as are available. I have just reinstalled outlook express, and the printer drivers but nothing has helped.

    Can anyone offer any ideas??

    ditto

    I have exactly the same problem. I guess there's no point in asking the people on this forum. Have you had any luck elsewhere?

    Have you tried a repair on Internet Explorer ?

    Control Panel > Add/Remove > highlight Internet Explorer 6 and Internet Tools and hit the remove button. Select the Repair option from the window that opens.

    Also have you tried reinstalling IE6 SP1

    Wow!

    LOL-sorry for the sarcasm.

    The reinstallation worked perfectly and I can now print in both IE and Outlook Express. Thank you very much for your prompt response--it was right on target.

    Can't Print in Outlook Express

    I have the same problem. IStarting last week, for some reason, if I click print or the print icon from IE6 or OE, nothing happens, but I can print fine from all other apps, including Microsoft Office Apps.

    I've tried the suggestions here... repairing I.E. via add/remove programs. While I.E. works fine for me normally, the repair mode runs for a while and eventually fails saying that IE cannot be repaired. Of course, it doesn't tell me why it can't be repaired.

    So, I downgraded back to IE 5. But I still couldn't print from there. Reinstalled (or rather upgraded back to ) IE6, and still no printing... no print windows... nothing.

    I've read about perhaps having a corrupt iepeers.dll file, but I put a backup copy of it into place, and still, nothing. Then, I even tried to re-register it in the registry, but no change.

    Any other things to try?

    Should I pull off IE6 and IE5 completely, and start IE over from scratch? Will that make me remove OE (which I don't want to remove if I don't have to. Too much configured there already.)

    And if so, what's the best way to remove IE without harming the rest of windows?

    Thanks very much!

    Righton.
