Why can't I print any documents in Chrome?

I just started having this problem this morning. I cannot print emails or attachments (usually pdf) in Chrome. If I open Gmail in another browser, it prints fine. The problem seems isolated to my computer. The printers are all functioning properly. I can log into Gmail on another computer and print. Short of re-imaging the computer, is there anything else I can try?

Try to print in Chrome through the system dialog.  Hit Shift+Ctrl+P.  

OR

Hit Ctrl+P.  Then at the bottom, click on 'Print using system dialog'.

How about reinstalling chrome on your computer, or look for recent updates to chrome that may have affected your ability to print.

Assuming you are using Windows run a System Restore to a time before the problem started.

In the meantime, download the .pdf and then choose Print from the .pdf on the hard drive.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I have tried all of them to no avail. Downloading PDFs to the desktop does allow the document to be printed. I have disabled all extensions, and that didn't work either. Now other users in that department are telling me they have a problem as well. I will try running anti-malware software. Please keep those suggestions coming. I am desperate. Thanks so much!

It is good that you at least have a work around.
What about a System Restore?
