I cannot print .gif email attachments (text, not image). The print spooler shuts down and I have to go through the exercice of deleting all files in the printers folder and restarting the spooler before I can print any other file type. It happens every time. I think these files were sent by i-phone. Any suggestions?

If it's a .gif file, it's an image regardless of whether it's comprised of text or a picture.

How are you trying to print it? What you should be doing is to right click the image and choose "Print" from the menu. This will launch the Windows Printing Wizard and send the image to the printer you have installed. You can usually choose other options such as reducing the size, or printing two of them together on one sheet of paper etc.

If the problem persists in spite of using the Wizard, could you please post the make and model of your printer?

Instead of using picture and fax viewer, open up Paint; Start Menu / All Programs / Accessories / Paint. It will allow you to print and also in color if desired.
