    IE9 crashes when printing any of its contents

    I'm using IE9 (Win7 Home Premium 32bits).

    Every time I try to print one of its pages it crashes.

    How do I completely remove IE9 and install a fresh new version?

    Other than that, Google Maps doesn't work at all. Hangs every time I try to use it.

    Don't know if this problem is related or not to a faulty IE9.

    Any help appreciated and thanks in advance.

    You have to go back to IE 8 then reinstall. Go to Control Panel, Programs and Features. Click the View Installed updates link (left side of window) Choose IE 9 in the list and uninstall. It will automatically revert to IE 8.

    Hello Ted,
    Thanks for your fast reply.
    I did as suggested.
    I reverted to IE8, but before reinstalling IE9 I tried printing a page from the Internet but IE8 also crashed.
    I can print from Word, Wordpad, Excel, etc with no problems whatsoever.
    What can be the problem?

    Hi chowur,

    Thanks for the help, but as you wrote this is only a workaround.
    I followed all the instructions given in the post you mentioned, but the problem still exists.
    I installed Google Chrome and tried printing the same pages. Didn't work either: IE9 crashed. Uninstalled Chrome.
    As the post mentions "It doesn't solve the crashing issue though."

    Let's hope Microsoft can find a fix for this bug SOON.

    Thanks again.

    Cheers,
    Flores

    Is this a new issue? Have you tried a system restore to a time when it worked?

    What have you changed or added recently?

    Hello Joe,

    Restoring the system was the first thing I did when the problem started.
    I had only 3 restore points available, Oct. 5 , the one I used, the oldest.
    I am quite sure the issue started after that date.

    Thanks, Joe.
