I have this unique message that comes up every once in a while when I am using Microsoft Word:
"Printer not responding. Do you want to continue to wait for the printer" with the Yes and No tabs. I can't understand what keys I press causes this since I don't even have a printer connected and I definitely not hitting Ctrl + P. I will be happy if somene can give me a solution.

Ok, so I checked Printers and Faxes in the control panel and noticed this wireless printer that had been set up a last year from school. Anyway that doesn't work anymore so I just deleted it. Hopefully this should work. Otherwise I will be back with questions. Thanks for the help!

You probably have printer drivers still on your computer.

Or a neighbor may be helping themselves to your bandwidth unless your wireless router has the security settings set properly.
