Windows 7: Wanting to print a file or page keeps crashing every programme

Windows 7 64bit
Wanting to print a file or page keeps crashing every programme


I just tried to print a PDF file on my HP deskjet 2150 printer, but it keeps crashing the Adobe Reader programme. It does the same with OpenOffice, Mozilla Firefox and any other.
Do you have any tips on how to fix this problem?

Kind regards,

Most likely related to print driver, you could try uninstalling and reinstalling printer may help
If printer is running off of windows default printer drivers then an sfc scan may help to check for any windows file errors
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
