I should have mentioned that the printer was working fine until about a week ago, I did not know that it has stopped working until I noticed the printer icon om the task bar and when I opened it I saw a number of files in the "Open Printer" Dialogue box.
I had recently installed CA Internet Security Suite to see how it went, mainly because I was given a free 12 month copy. I guessed the problem may have been related to the firewall but could not see how to easily configure it allow the shared printer.
I uninstalled the CA and reinstalled MSE and the spooled docs all printed out.
To be fair to CA I did not try their support as I was in a big hurry.
BTW, I have used MSE on three PC's and have had no Malware issues, I run Spybot and Malwarebytes monthly to confirm this.
Thanks for your posts.
