Watch Question

I do know that this is due to the installation of Office 2003 SP3. I have the same issue on several client LANs and have yet to discover the fix just yet.
Since you cannot uninstall Office 2003 SP3 does anyone have a work around yet?
I have been waiting for over 3 months for Brother to reply this problem. Does anyone have any suggestions yet?
You are not alone.  I still have not figured out an answer to this issue.
