I've got a Windows 7 system which I just patched to current after putting off for six months due to concerns about the Meltdown/Spectre patches. Since there had been multiple fixes of the fixes and the problems for others seemed to have subsided, I figured I had better get all those other patches and be as safe as possible. After the updates, there didn't seem to be any problems, but I don't print anything very often these days. Now I have found a problem. The printer driver thinks the printer is out of paper. It is not. Resetting a dozen different ways has made no difference. Manually stopping the print spooler, changing the settings on the printer driver, physically turning the printer off and on again. No effect. It's not the hardware. Rebooting my dual-boot system into Linux Mint, I can still print with this printer. It's Windows 7 that has the problem. There are plenty of threads from years ago about this problem. That's where the attempted solutions came from. None of them work. Has anyone else had this experience with Windows 7 lately?
