Hi Folks:
     I have a client who has developed a problem with one system. Google maps / Mapquest maps display correctly on the screen, but when printed they either print completely blank, or with a white square of abot 2 inches by two inches over the particular location entered for the map. Have reinstalled the printer driver, no help. Probem was in IE, downloaded and installed Chrome, same problem. All other computers on network are fine, all running same versions of Windows 7 and IE (8). I have checked system for malware, nothing found.
 Any suggestions assistance would be most welcome as a rather annoying problem.
Regards, Dave Melnyk

Remove the printers (all if possible) reboot then add the one device. Either us the exact driver or a universal one. If it continues remove then readd the pdf tools on that workstation.
Final option, print to pdf then print!

Hi David:

     have tried removing the printers... still and issue. Which PDF tools are you refering to? Currently nothing on the system for PDF other than adobe reader, unless something in Windows 7 that I am unaware of...

ok. rather than remove adobe reader which is pain, is the problem duplicated in Firefox?
Does this affect other pages?
