Thanks yet again. I have a few physical printers installed on both systems, though mainly different ones.

I tried installing an HP Laserjet on the desktop machine. We shall see if that cures it. I don’t want to precipitate a crash right now, and I’m not sure if the crashes are guaranteed every time, so it may be some time before I update this thread with the results.

As for why this might work, I seem to remember reading long ago that these kernel-mode printer drivers might have some daisy-chaining they do, and it’s possible, e.g., that uninstalling some driver had some unintended consequences. Or, impossible as it may seem, windows might have a bug :wink:. More likely, though, is my original theory — some recent security fix broke something that the driver was assuming.
