This is my first post. Glad to be in this trustworthy community!
I have windows 7, 64-bit version with a brother mfc 8840d and HP color laserjet 1600 connected through usb and have successfully been operating the two for approximately 3 months now. I installed 4 windows updates today [Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2158563), Update for Microsoft Silverlight (KB2416427), Update for Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility View List for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB2362765), and Update for Windows 7 for x64-based Systems (KB979538)]. Brother seems to work fine until HP is switched on then print spool services are disabled??!!
Ever since the update my print spool service will not stay "start"ed automatically or manually. I've tried patches and updates from microsoft and HP. Brother updates are included in windows updates and no patch available. Assuming brother isn't problem anyway...
All help, solutions, and ideas are appreciated.
Thanks and God Bless,
