    printing problem

    Hi, Every time I switch my computer on it always try's to print a document. I cancel it and it still gets sent to the printer every time who ever I log on as how can I trace the program responsible and stop it from happening in the future.

    What OS are you using?

    If it's one of the Windows ones - Have you tried running msconfig
    to see which programs are loaded at startup?

    i guess there's a bug on winXP, there's no way to cancel the print job, unless you shut down your printer and then turn it on again.

    Oh sorry...

    Click on 'Start', then on 'Run', type in 'msconfig' in the box.

    Click on the 'startup' tab, from here you can see what programs are loaded at startup, and uncheck the ones you don't want. If you have doubts over what a program does, DON'T remove it... it might be vital... honest...

    Maybe there is a program that runs when start up and the program will require to print a document.

    Once your Windows XP was installed, the problem occured, OR it the problem started after u installed some programs?

    If this is the program problem, try to use the Windows XP's recovery program. Try turn back to the recovery point when there is no problem.

    Hope this can help...

    er.... is your meaning is everytime you startup your windows, will processed the print job task?

    if yes, change it at the msconfig on the startup options
