Need urgent help with Microsoft Word! (plz)

I don't know why I haven't seen this anywhere on the net before because its not just me. I've talked to several friends all of which have the same problem and have different computers and different printers...
Problem is, I can never print page borders properly. It will always cut off the bottom horizontal line. I've tried increasing the border distance from the bottom of the page (Format > Borders and Shading > Page Border > Options > Bottom) all the way up to the max of 31 points but still no success. It even shows it cut off in the print preview.
And I know it's word screwing me around because other programs CAN print in that area so it's not a damn unprintable area as the annoying microsoft support articles like to claim.

Someone PLEASE help, I urgently need to print an important document with borders...

Thankyou sincerely,

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
