Windows 7: "application not responding..."

"application not responding..."


Just wondering if you guys can give me a hand with this issue.

Ever since the latest windows 7 update I get this window message "application not responding...". It's upon start up and it basically freezes the computer so I have to manually restart it. CRTL-ALT-DEL doesn't work. If I get into the task manager right away I can disable a bunch of processes and make it so it doesn't crash. Just by looking at stuff I figured out that I can disable the Application Experience in msconfig. This let the CPU boot up and function perfectly except I can't print.

I tried uninstalling my lexmark x4550 and reinstalling but the application error came back. I just want to be able to connect to the printer again and not have my wife bug me bc the computer keeps freezing. I'm probably below a novice on computer trouble shooting so be gentle.

thanks in advance

My first step would be to go to lexmark's website and find the latest drivers for you product there.

I just went and looked and I think I see your problem, there are no windows 7 drivers for the product which must mean you are using vista drivers in compatibility mode.
It still wouldn't hurt to go here

and at least see that you have the last vista driver that was released.
