WordPerfect 10 won't print

All of a sudden when using WordPerfect 10 it hangs when the print dialog box comes up.  You don't even need to print... simply bring up the dialog box and you'll notice the cursor, in the background, has stopped blinking.
Cancelling doesn't help.
I have turned off the timed saving (autosave) and that doesn't help.
Running XP Home and WordPerfect has the latest patches...

Any thoughts?
