    I have a small home network. 2 Windows XP Pro machines and 1 Vista home machine. One of the XP machines is setup as a file and print server with a color Brother and b&w Canon laser printer and one inkjet. I have had this setup for some time now and have had no problems printing to the print server (XP) from the Vista machine until yesterday. The Vista machine also has a laser and a inkjet printer connected locally and works fine when printing. When I try to print on any of the network printers from any program (Office, Acrobat or even notepad), the program stops responding. The printer dialog will eventually display and you can click on the print button but nothing happens. You can access files on the Xp server fine. I have done a system restore on the Vista machine but nothing changed. I am stumped. Help would be greatly appreciated.
