vista/brother printing
I had to set my PC back to factory default. Now I am having problems
printing, I think installation was successful, however when I click print it
shows the printer as Brother DCP-130C, but when I click print again instead
of printing I get a 'save as' window, can you help me get printing again?

Re: vista/brother printing
Sounds like you've set the printer to print to the "FILE:" port. Go to
'Control Panel|Printers', right click the printer, select "Properties",
click the "Ports" tab, and make sure its not set to FILE:
