Hi Coxchris
No I did not interrupt anything, Pc asked to be rebooted for updates to take effect, as normally often is the case.
I schedule CCleaner weekly, Avast custom scan at 100% sensitivity, all files - no exceptions plus rootkit also weekly; Spybot monthly.
I therefore believe the problem had something to do with the updates themselves.
Desperate to have my desktop with its printer available asap, I could not wait for your response, so reinstalled Win7 this morning from scratch (without reformatting) and between reloading all programs and using Synctoy to restore all data from my laptop, have been able to print again. And most importantly have complete current copy of all data on laptop. I am going overseas with laptop 14 hours from now, and needed to print E-tickets and have data security in case laptop broke/stolen.
Chris, thank you nevertheless for the interest and willingness you have shown, and also thank you to bleepingcomputer for your provision of an invaluable service. Over 2 years ago I allowed my PC to get infected via a peer to peer site and bleepingcomputer cleaned out the Dreaded Lurgies.
Regards
Mike

I would roll back whichever driver you downloaded.
