Vista won't print until user logs off
My mother is having a problem with printing from her computer. She is using
Windows Vista Home Basic. The printer is an Epson Stylus Photo R300
connected directly to her computer.

Vista. Once the user logs off, all of the print jobs go to the printer and
print well. It does not seem to matter what application sent the first job -

the user logs off. We have also tried using a Brother laser printer with the
Is there a toggle box somewhere that holds print jobs like this? Any help
would be greatly appreciated as this is most frustrating.
