Hey guys i have another problem so i ask you for ur help again, since u guys have never failed me yet. When i go to print any documents the program i am tyring to print the document from stops responding and the printer options dont come up for like another 5 mins later. Then when i can finally select the print option, it takes 15 minutes for it to print out. Anybody know what is going on?? It never used to do this till like 4 days ago.

No, I Dont have the printer reinstalation disks, i cant find them, but the printer is still the hp printer updates with no problem. If it was corrupted wouldnt it stop taking the updates.

Not necessarily, IMO.

"Corrupted" is just an atypical way of saying "damaged".

We all continuously suffer "damage" to our bodies...but it doesn't necessarily impair us until we want to do something that places particular stress on the damaged area.

I think of computers/programs in the same way. But a computer cannot grow its own cells or replace the damaged area or even try to heal it. That's why we try to replace files which we suspect of being "damaged".
