Outlook 2007 Printing Problem – KB2509470

I had multiple computers that were not able to connect to a network printer (or local printers, even a PDF printer) with an error.

Some computers inboxes in Outlook were even flickering!

When selecting to print the email, the following message would display:

“There is a problem with selected printer. You might need to reinstall this printer. Try again, or use a different printer.”

After some online research, turns out Microsoft pulled a Windows Update that was just released.

The link is available here:


I removed that, rebooted, and was good.

Hope this spares another person an hour to free up something else.
