IE prints only source code for web pages. using IE6 or IE7 and does this on two different manufacturers printers. Mozilla functions fine. This did work fine before but happened after AOL software was removed and the IE browser settings were reset. Java has been updated to the latest.

    Go to and follow the instructions from Microsoft Tech Support on the re-install of IE7 to see if will solve this problem as did for the other person.

    Usually all that needs to happen is you reconfirm IE as the default browser now that the AOL browser has been removed.

    Removing IE7 completely from this PC fixed the problem. This PC also has Easy Web Print software from Canon, which has a known incompatibility with IE7.
