I saw where Steve had a problem with the 2 HP printers install in Feb..2006.

I wanted to make a late response but, the thread was locked.

Why do you lock threads? Laughing

Threads are locked when a problem is resolved as once a problem is resolved there should be no reason to post again. This encourages people with similar problems, but that need help to start a new thread. We also had a problem with spam on this forum, and locking threads reduces the impact spammers can have.

I think I'll just lock the thread and move it! Laughing
