Help with new user profile...

I am having a problem on my system where my printer eventually will not work without a reboot (cant commnunicate with printer is the error I get), but I do not have this problem when other users are logged on. I am considering creating a new profile, moving all my personal files, and then deleting the default profile that appears to be corrupt. Feedback on possible alternatives, opinions on the process, and tips if I decide to venture this would be great. I have tons of small apps I use, and settings etc. I have found that the "EXPORT FILES & SETTINGS" wizard will also export whatever setting it is that is screwed up to begin with, so I will have to basically start fresh. Will this be HELL since my original profile is the Default/Admin? This is the only reason I ever have to reboot, and it is driving me CRAZY........ THANKS..........


FYI...

Printer: Lexmark X83 (3-in-1)

System (less than 3 months old Dell)
P4 1.9GhZ
512 MB RDRAM
WinXP Pro

ok this might seem an odd question, but did you buy your computer from QVC? and on to your problem, Lexmark has been having trouble with windows XP with some of it's printers i've heard, check lexmark for any possible driver updates...also if the X83 has a parallel port i'd recommend using it instead of usb

No, i didn't buy it on QVC :D

Also, LEXMARK SUCKSSSSSSS!!

I know this. They have only released on driver since XP was released, and don;t even have a knowledgebase or faq online. I have had dreams of simple parallel, but alas, that is not an option........ :confused:

hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.....

thx for the response, anyone got any other ideas?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
