Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
MS Office 2010 printing issue

Hello. I'll try to keep this short and sweet.

Computer: Dell Studio 1737, Win7 64bit.

Issue: I could always print to networked and wireless printers...never had a problem. After upgrading to MS Office 2010 (from MS Office 2007), I lost that ability. Whenever I attempt to "add a printer" through Word or Excel, etc., I get the lovely "Active Domain Directory Services in unavailable" error.

I have also attempted to connect to numerous networked/wireless printers through the Windows "Add a Printer" in the control panel, but to no avail, even though I know the local IP addresses of these printers (Windows simply can't find the printers).

How can I go about fixing this?
