About one week ago, my hp 1100 laserjet printer started to print by itself. I did not send any job to it. It just started to feed paper through it - blank pages came out and it wouldn't stop. I unhooked the printer, hooked up my old HP laserjet 4L, and it started to do the same thing. Both of these are working off the parallel port cable.

Now I've noticed that my HP Photosmart 8250 is trying to do the same thing (it's on a USB connection).
This did occur when I was having a malware issue. That problem has been solved within another forum.

I'd appreciate any steps as to what I should do.
