I have a user, when they click on properties for a printer, the properties menu page closes.

This is a local printer connected via usb.  User using Windows XP SP3.

Also, it only happens when the properties of the printer are clicked from within a program.  Let's say MS Word 2007.  If I click on File, Print, properties, the page closes.
But, if I click on printer properties from Windows, the properties menu does not close.
Also, I tried Adobe Reader, and the same thing happens.

losgadas--Does this happen with another USB connection for the printer?
Look for updated drivers for printer.  
If that does not help, Uninstall/reinstall printer.
