Hey Everyone,

We have a client that is having a weird printing issue I'm hoping someone here has fixed before.  They have three locations with the same Sharp printers and random computers at each location have started giving the error "the selected printer is not available or not installed correctly" when trying to print.  It works normally in all other browsers and local programs, she reinstalls Chrome and it works again.  Sometimes it comes back and she reinstalls chrome again and it works, sometimes it stays away.  Completely random.  Drivers have been updated, etc.  Not finding anything on google except to try Ctrl+Alt+P which just pops up the same error message.  Default extensions are in the browser, only ABP and Adobe Reader which shouldn't block printing, we've disabled all extensions anyway and it still didn't print.  

Any help would be great!
