Is your Ghostscript up-to-date?

It is.  The same user managed to get this error on his previous laptop which was a Windows XP machine and now he has it on his new Windows 7 laptop.  The only commonality is the user who has no idea what he may have done.

ok please do this steps:
1) uninstall Primo PDF, PDF, bullzip, etc
2) uninstall Ghostscript
3) Check if you still see some PDF Printers. If yes delete them
4) Update your PDF Reader (If Adobe to http://get.adobe.com/de/reader/ )
5) install Ghostscript
6) install Primo PDF

Will you still get an error?

I will attempt to try this today.  A new bit of information i just recieved is that Primo works internally at one of our locations but does not work outside of our network.  This only confuses me more as i was unaware of any network related settings used by primo.
