I am on a windows 7 client machine and I'm printing to a server printer on a windows 2008 R2 Foundation edition.

When I go to devices and printers and click on "Adjust print options" I get this error:

Function address 0x6d32f845 caused a protection fault. (exception code 0xc0000005) Some or all property page(s) may not be displayed.

It's an HP Offijet Pro L7500 Series printer

Okay, I got it. I removed the printer. I went to Devices and printers, selected the printer and clicked on Print Server Properties at the top. Then I clicked on drivers. Removed this printer's drivers. started and stopped the printer spooler. Then reinstalled the printer from the server.
