Windows 7: Prints html Characters when printing from Windows Live Mail

Windows 7 Ultimate w/ Service Pack 1 64-Bit
Prints html Characters when printing from Windows Live Mail

Hi All,

Helping a friend through Remote.

System: Sony Vaio
OS: Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit
WLM = Latest version installed.

When using Windows LIve Mail, we are seeing Control Characters being printed when printing to the HP Wireless Printer or to a .XPS Document.

When printing from Internet Explorer 8.0 or MS Word, the printing is normal.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Just a shot in the dark - although this link does not refer to WLM but a no longer supported software, I wonder if there might be some pointers :
HTML Code May Be Printed Instead of Web Page or Message

I will keep looking, so please post back with any or no result.
