View Full Version : IE7 in Vista stopped working after installing printer driver

13-03-2007, 08:57 PM
A friend has just purchased a new PC with Vista Home Basic. IE was working fine until he installed the driver for his new printer. Now IE will not start in Protected Mode, it works fine when Protected Mode is turned off.

Anyone has any ideas what could be the cause or fix for this problem?

Did you have a Vista driver for the printer?

I have to check, it isn't my computer, just asking on here on behalf of a friend

What kind of printer is it?

Its not an HP printer, is it?

If it is, it looks like HP Director (if this gets installed), conflicts / isnt compatible with IE 7. According to Google.

Dont know if this has anything to do with it.
