    [Solution] Blank Print Preview \ Print Jobs in IE

    Hi,

    Had a problem about a month ago where users would go to print from IE and they would get a blank print prieview, and upon printing get a blank page with "//file\\c:\username\appdata\....." microsoft suggested a fix that was manual (You cannot print or print preview Web pages in Internet Explorer on Windows Vista or on Windows 7

    This was not practical for roaming profiles / large amounts of users, so i wrote this little script that runs at logon.


    Code:
    @ECHO off
    If not exist %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp\Low (
     echo.
     echo Creating Low Folder...
     mkdir %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp\Low
    )
    echo.
    echo Apply Integrity Level...
    echo.
    ICACLS "%userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp\Low" /setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)low
    exit
    Applied as a GP Logon script works a treat and solved all the issues.

    Hope its useful for someone.

    Thanks for this, I have added it to the windows 7 gotchas list and also moved the post into the windows 7 folder.
    NOTE: without this fix Java can also crash IE

    Dredging an old one here, but this reared its head today, following me running a load of the MS monthly updates. Your script worked a charm, thanks!
