Respectfully; this has been covered a thousand times in this forum. Windows 7 does not support sharing a printer via USB very well if at all. And if you are lucky to get it to work it will then stop working for no reason, or it will not print correctly etc. etc.

Your best bet is to buy a USB to Network device and add the printer to your network, then it will print perfectly and you donít have to leave a machine on for another to print. -WS
