A couple of weeks ago I lost the ability to print from IE 9...kept getting a script error. This happened one other time and I solved it by restoring the computer to an earlier point w/o really understanding what went wrong. I tried that again but now the computer is unable to restore...I tried two different restore points w/o success but will raise the issue with a new question. I decided to install IE 10 to see if that would solve the problem on my Windows 7 laptop but I got an internal error once and a script error in a second attempt. I am able to print from all other applications and while I don't use Safari, I have it on the computer and have now verified that I can print from Safari.
Using Autoruns, I checked for missing programs and found that C:\Windows\system32\ie4uinit.exe is missing. Based on my searching, this program file is part of the operating system, and it is known as the Internet Explorer repair tool. It appears that this software is considered safe, and is not considered trojan, spyware, or virus related software. I don't know whether this is the cause of my printing problem or how to reinstall it, if so. I don't see how to attach a print screen of the errors but they are:
1. "There was an internal error, and Internet Explorer is unable to print this document."
2. "An error has occurred in the script on this page. Line: 2432; Char: 1; Invalid procedure call or argument. Code: 0; URL: res://ieframe.dll/preview.js" (This is, by far, the most common error.)
