hi , i could use some advice please, i cannot download the software for my 2 brother printers i use in my win7 x 64 bit acer laptop. i had these 2 printers working fine until about 6 weeks ago, they just disappeared. i have the disc for one of the printers ( an HL-2140 laser printer ) i also have another HL-2140 and neither of the discs will do anything , they just spin in the drive, the second machine i have that used to work fine in this laptop is an MFC 424CN.
downloading direct from the brother web site does not work, i eventually get a message , something like "invalid arguments ".
i run the following in the computer, key scrambler , wise365 reg cleaner ( i have been using this for about 2 years ) , and a free version of comodo anti virus , i used to run a paid for version of vipre anti virus but deleted it to try comodo, i have also run malwarebytes and hitman - pro through it , in every instance i deleted the installed software before i tried another one.
i do not know if i have a virus or not, the second HL-2140 laser printer is running fine in my XP pro desktop , and the 2 printers i am having trouble with run fine in my toshiba xp home laptop, any help would be appreciated , thank you donar
