I am running Vista Home Premium. Recently installed an HP Officejet J6400 wirelessly. It was working fine for about 2 weeks. Now when a print job is sent to the printer from the computer (with settings to print 1 copy), the printer makes 2 copies or maybe 6 copies or 10 copies(I canceled that print job so who knows how many!) I have downloaded all available updates. Anyone with any ideas! I'd very much appreciate any help/fixes. Thank you.

I don't do much with printers - but uninstalling the printer software then reinstalling it may help.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Thanks but that has been tried. I am going to try a different driver, possibly a 64bit instead of the 32 that should be working....Still open to suggestions.
