Vista Crashes When Attempting to Add Network Printer
Very frustrating! I am just trying to add a simple HP Laserjet III printer. When I click on "Add A Printer" and select "Add a network, wireless, or Bluetooth" printer, I get the following:

"Windows Explorer has stopped working. Looking for a solution", followed by "Windows Explorer is restarting...".

Additional info:

1) I can see the dialog in the background that shows available printers, but it's empty and only comes up and is immediately covered by the error message above

2) This is a clean install of a business Action Pak edition of Vista.

3) I am part of a domain - which is run by Windows 2000 machines

4) Not that I even get that far, but the machine this printer is on is Windows 2000

5) I tried installing the printer locally and succeeded ... of course, I'm not connected to it so it won't work but I just wanted to see if the rest of the printer functionality was working.

6) I have downloaded the latest updates.

Any help would be appreciated ... sucks I can't even ATTEMPT to add a network printer without a crash!!!

The computer is connected to a Windows 2003 Server Domain. What is the problem?

RE: Vista Crashes When Attempting to Add Network Printer
I was having this problem today when trying to connect to a network printer
and found that it was an issue with the domain registration. I went in and
re-set my domain info and set my user name to an administrator and once I
restarted it fixed the issue. Apparently Vista will not warn you if the
workgroup or domain is not set correctly - it just crashes. You may have to
be set up as an administrator also.
