IE7 crashes when attempting to print from Hoovers.com

This is a very strange issue, as Hoovers.com does not appear to have any plugins associated with its pages.  When pressing the "Print This Page" button or just printing through IE (Ctrl+P), IE7 crashes and does not print.  It does not do it on other websites and only on the "company profile" pages at Hoovers.com.

I have tried resetting IE7 to defaults, adding the site to Trusted Sites and lowering security on said categories to minimal.  I have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling IE7.  IE6 does NOT crash under the same circumstances.  I have also tried opening IE7 in Safe Mode, to no avail.

Have you tried a different printer model/brand or just a different driver?
If you have installed try printing to MS XPS Document writer

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the printer and tried other printers and the XPS Document writer as well as the Adobe one.

I don't believe it to be a printer issue.

Also experienced this issue in XP (SP2)  Not sure what is going on.  Directed the user to Firefox until a solution is found.

This is the solution we're going to have to go with, since this is such a minute issue to begin with.

I understand that this is a ridiculous issue to begin with but I appreciate your support and time in helping resolve it.
