    Try going into the properties after you selece print - or printer setup. You may have B&W only selected.

    I gotta agree with the cop if all else fails uninstal and then reinstall it. Sometimes that is the only way to weed out a few problems. It's drastic, but when your frustrated and at the end of your rope, it won't seem so drastic [​IMG] GOOD LUCK!
