Printer Defaults Issues
I jsut finished applying Vista Business SP1 to my Vista PC and didn;t see any
change as to why the default printer will never stay ad the default when the
PC is restarted or shut off. Does anyone ahve any ideas as to why this is
happening because the issu is getting old fast.
