How long ago did you install OneCare?

Do you have a Windows System Restore date that precedes it?

Microsoft provides support at no charge for issues resulting from installation of their security updates and I would think the same would apply here.

Try it and see. They have probably experienced the same anomaly experienced by other users.

Microsoft Security Product Support Policy

Technical support is available from Microsoft Product Support
Services at 1-866-PC SAFETY (1-866-727-2338).

There is no charge for support calls associated with security updates.

International customers can get support from their local Microsoft
subsidiaries. Phone numbers for international support can be found
at: http://support.microsoft.com/common/international.aspx


You could also try completely removing the printer and reinstalling it.
