I have an HP F4200 series printer (white) with a USB interface. I have freshly uninstalled, downloaded and installed the drivers from HP for the printer. It see and adds the printer fine, but when I right click for properties I get an error message from explorer.exe and an instruction fault. I cannot print to the printer either.

The other printer on the system is fine.  Stand alone XP Pro machine.

---------------------------
C:\WINDOWS\Explorer.EXE
---------------------------
Function address 0x500a0490 caused a protection fault. (exception code 0xc0000005)
Some or all property page(s) may not be displayed.

OK
