I'm using a Dell V313 printer and, although not working perfectly (as other threads will show), it was workable.
Now, all of a sudden, it will not print: nothing, no how, no way.
I've been running the Dell Printer support program and I've gotten to the point where it says my "dleacoms.exe" and "dleawbgw.exe" files have been blocked and I have to unblock them in order for the printer to work. This may very well be the problem, but I can't find where these files are/were, and I have no clue how to unblock them.
The other day, I had a slight problem with the computer where first it just froze while I had several windows open and I had to manually (push the "on" button)shut the computer down TWICE (the second time it booted up but all I got was a blank, black screen).
After getting it up and running, I lost all my passwords and had to sign in to all my sites again, but all else seems fine.
I do not know if that could have anything to do with what's going on, but I had a brief, small, similar problem with the printer before this happened.
I am running Win7 and using Norton Anti-virus.
The answer is....chocolate! Who cares what the question is.....
