This didn't quite fit into any particular category. OS is Windows 7. It's on a network at my job. EVERY time we have to print, a bubble pops up from the task bar announcing the print job has been sent to the printer. We used to be able to click settings on this and disable it or change the notification in preferences. Now it won't work. Even if you disable it in settings, the next time a print job is sent, it changes it back to the default. We've asked our IS dept to fix it but they seem to think there is no global fix for it. I could probably put up with it, but the print notificaton disables the window I'm working in, so I have to stop and grab my mouse EVERY SINGLE BLOODY TIME to get back into my window while the stupid bubble takes it's sweet time fading away?????

The only topics I've been able to find are for earlier versions of windows and don't work anymore. All the others recommend changing the registry which, clearly, I can't do (not that I haven't considered it!!!)

Any suggestions???? Please.....PRETTY PLEASE!!!! AND THANK YOU....

The seemingly obvious problem/solution, IMO...is corrupt software or print drivers. Reinstalling either/both is what I would do.
