Default Viewing installed printers

When I go to control panel in Windows XP and attempt to look at installed
printers, I get error message, saying it has to close, and asking if I want
to send error report. I am trying to view my printers properties so I can
print a test page. Anyone have any solution or remedy? I have rebooted the
computer and I still get same error message.

Default Viewing installed printers


If you have a network card on the machine you can attempt to view them
"remotely". This will only work for local printers not connections to
another machine

Start
Run
\\machinename
open the printers folder there.


Also, some files may not be correct. At a command prompt run
sfc /scannow


I'm assuming the explorer process has to close.
