Print Preview not working & Windows Help feature error - help

Hey all,

Ive gone to print a bunch of photos, usually print preview pops up, i select the style I want to print out, 1 pic per page, 4 pics per page or wallet size etc etc.

But its completely gone!


My pc is HP Touchsmart 610a, i5, windows 7 ulitmate, about 3yrs old now

Have never had this issue before. I uninstalled my old printer about 3 weeks ago, was a HP photosmart.
And now have a Canon Pixmar MG6460 since then. I have printed plenty on it, but not many photos, but last time, print preview was working like normal

I have a Acer i7 notebook on W8.1, the same Canon printer is set up on the notebook over a shared network & print preview works normal just as it should.

I did a system check via SFC.exe, system file checker tool, my pc came up fine, no issues at all.
I managed to find & make sure that the box for 'show print preview' was checked, but after checking the box, preview still is a no go

anyother issue im having is with windows help... i click the Question mark & get this error, every single time....




I found a fix for it via a microsoft, but that supposed fix did nothing.

any have idea ideas or dealt with either of these issues?

Can the "preview" windows feature on the taskbar be disabled?
If you have several windows open on the taskbar, and you hover over the taskbar it shows you a "preview" of the windows that are open. Is there a way to disable that "preview" feature?
