How to prevent printing gibberish?
I noticed this issue in many different enterprises :
once in a while, a user will send a print request to his network printer and all he will get is tons of sheets with 1 line of gibberish.
Each time, I solve the issue by removing the printer from the computer and reinstalling it.
But... I wonder why it happens in the first place?
The printer was obviously the right one because the user was able to print a few hours earlier on the exact same printer. Yet, reinstalling the driver fixes the issue. I thought it could be driver corruption but our computers are frozen under deepfreeze (most of you are probably familiar with this software). So if the driver was corrupted, a simple reboot should fix the problem yet it doesn't.
All in all, I know how to fix the issue when it happens but I would like to know if I can PREVENT it. Is it possible?
