    Printers

    I am trying to add a printer to someone's NT 4.0 box and the printer box hangs. I get nothing but a menu bar at the top and an hourglass. Has anyone seen this? Any idea what to do? I have rebooted the PC and that did absolutely nothing.

    Is this machine logging into a network? And are you browsing for the printer? At a guess I'd say it's trying to build a network list. Try typing in the direct path:

    <pre>SERVERprintershare</pre>

    Yes, the PC is on a Novell network. The problem is that I can't even get the box open for the printer muchless get to a place where I can add it. We've recently installed a new version of GroupWise and it has caused numerous other problems. I wonder if it is causing this problem, too.
