    In addition I should point out that yes IE7 is the default browser and I do
    have the latest HP (2575a model) updates installed too...

    Exact same problem. Using Vista and IE7 with new printer. Hasn't worked
    from the get-go with same error message. Din't understand how this could be
    printer settings issue as am using basic printer.

  3. IE | Tools | Internet Options | Security | uncheck/disable Enable Protected
    Mode | Close then re-open IE and see if you can print in IE | Now re-enable
    Protected Mode (IMPORTANT!).

    If you can print with Protected Mode disabled, IE is using folders for
    temporary storage that are not set to a Low integrity level.

    Vista creates the necessary folders for printing by default in the %TEMP%
    folder but many third-party disk cleaning tools (and even some anti-virus
    applications) mistakenly remove it.

    To recreate the required Low Integrity folder:

    • Browse to the Temp folder of your user account; e.g,.

    • Create a new folder named Low; e.g.,

    [If your Username is BUD, replace <Username> with BUD.]

    • Start | Run | type or copy/paste the following line (exactly as you see
    it) into the Command box:

    ICACLS "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp\Low" /setintegritylevel

    [If your userprofile is named BUD, replace %userprofile% with BUD.]

    • Use the keyboard combination CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER to run the Command with
    Administrator priviliges.

    • You should see a message similar to the following:

    processed file: C:\Users\Bill Castner\AppData\Local\Temp\Low
    Successfully processed 1 files; Failed processing 0 files

    • You should now be able to print with IE running in Protected Mode.

    Detailed discussion of the above:

    [1] Some AVG Anti-Virus users have found that uninstalling AVG and replacing
    it with another AV app resolves the problem. YMMV.
