Win98 printers disappeared and printer folder won't open
Posted on 2004-10-27
Windows98 1st ed. Working fine. Suddenly Control Panel > Printers folder will not open. In Explorer you can open the printers folder - but it only has "Add Printer", I had several printers set up, all working fine, they are not there now.
Any way - reg key or system.ini or spools folder - to reset the printers? By deleting a key or a folder or system.ini setting?
No viruses or spyware on the pc.
Even if I have to re-install all the printers that's OK - I can't even do that now, the Add Printer wizard goes unresponsive and looks up the pc when I try.
