i know what phantom was talking about with using a internal or local internet, my printer uses spoolsv.exe to initiate lxcqpswx.exe to to enable communication between the printer and the computer. It uses tcp ip to link bidirectionally. All of this is done thru the cable thou not by wifi or anything, it is a usb printer with the wifi disabled, it just needs the ports to say they are available. Everytime i forget to hit direct connect it jams the printer and i have to unplug everything. I kind of understand checking on programs starting others but not a printer spool driver that is needed just to down load a page. It would be nicer to have a way to disable the checking for opening a new program with another program.In the version 2.06 v4 i think, my printer was not stopped from starting or spooling to print a page? I usually clear all my apps when i shut down my computer and internet connection so i know if anything is trying to send or load information the next time, I wish there was a plugin or rie to fix this.
