Problem printing from programs

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
Hi Everyone,

I'm having issues printing from word, excel, adobe reader, but if I print a test page from the "printer Properties" I'm able to print ok.

I have an Epson Workforce 630 and a Win7 64-bit Desktop installed with the most recent drivers downloaded from the Epson's website support.

I check the logs and I got 6 printing errors, this is the message on those errors

The print spooler failed to load a plug-in module C:\Windows\system32\spool\DRIVERS\x64\3\E_IUICGBA.DLL, error code 0xc1. See the event user data for context information.

I First updated the drivers, but it didn't solve this problem, then i completely uninstalled the printer and all its components from "Programs and Features" and reinstall everything again, but I'm still having the same issue.

If I try to print from adobe reader, i get a message asking to install a printer, but the printer is installed.
If I try to print from Microsoft office programs, the window freezes.

Any ideas?
