    My printer that is shared between my pc (XP pro) and my laptop (Vista) takes a long time to print. Any ideas? It sounds like a driver issue but the driver on the Vista machine is current.

    Found this related to slow printing....

    The printer is printing more slowly than usual.

    To change or restart the Print Spooler service
    You must be logged on as an administrator to perform these steps.

    1. Open Administrative Tools by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking Administrative Tools.

    2. Double-click Services. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    3. Right-click the Print Spooler service, and then click Properties.

    4. On the General tab, next to Startup type, make sure that Automatic is selected.

    5. If the service is not already running, under Service status, click Start, and then click OK. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    let us know how you get on..:)
