I am trying to print a word document from my desktop but when I do I get an error message saying 'no printers are installed.' There are however 3 printers installed in addition to the virtual printers such as PDF ect. If I open the same document in Adobe reader or acrobat as a PDF I can print it. Is there some setting in Word I need to change to be able to print from Word?

My first thought is to either try to repair the Word install:


Or uninstall and reinstall Word.
