Hello peterm - that always sounds so formal can I call you Peter?
Do you get any error messages when you try to delete the windows folder?
No just the animated box with the files 'flying' across then that stops and nothing has happened
double click my computer. Click on tools>folder options>view tab.
Under hidden files & folders put a mark next to show hidden files and folders, uncheck hide extensions for know file types and uncheck hide protected operating files (recommended) you will get a warning message click yes then click ok
to exit, have a look in the windows folder we are trying to delete are there any more files in there? if yes delete them then try to delete the folder.
Did that several files were revealed - I have deleted them all one I had to change the attributes of one but 'Windows' is now gone !
Thanks very much one problem gone.
Open my network places. On the left hand side click on view workgroup computers. You should see an icon for the hub
click on that is the printer listed?
Did that - no Hub icon only 'Dell' and 'Systemax' Its the same on both PCs
I notice in Settings>Printers and Faxes there is now an icon for "Microsoft XPS Document Writer" on the Systemax - would this be as a result of setting up the Network printer?
And just a note - when I've had problems with wireless / usb printer connections before - especially with documents 'jamming' the connection, it has usually been because the page properties (a4 etc) do not match the printer's defaults. So have a look at that if you have any problems.
I checked the printer and 'Notepad's' settings and they both show "A4 210 x297 mm"
USB Printer on home hub........
6.Choose LPR as protocol Queue Name: LPT1 DONT check LPR byte counting as enabled, click ok.
Went into properties on the printer I set up and unchecked 'LPR byte counting'
Tried a test page and nothing happened job appeared in print manager so I unplugged and deleted the job (which took a couple on mins to work)
Plugged in the USB cable again and tried another test print it got about half way though and stopped with the printer light flashing
Tried a PC 'restart' clicked 'test print' and nothing happens job appears in print manager.
Wait to hear from you about the printer if you want to go on
