After the people installed Internet explorer 11, they started having printer issues.

Members found that if they uninstalled Internet Explorer 11, the printer problems went away.

Not sure if Internet Explorer 11 is causing other issues or not. Still watching to see if there are other issues.

This problem did NOT happen until Internet Explorer 11 was introduced.

Using the option to turn off the balloon tips, you cannot tell if the printer is low on ink, the paper jams or is not communicating.

Thanks for the new workaround, PudgyOne! Now I can utilize the speed and security of IE11 AND have a functional printer.

Installed IE11, again, today. Afterward, even the first print request will not complete. Back to IE10 and four separate print requests worked fine.

Installed IE11 today. Attempted to run prints to my Dell V515w connected wirelessly afterward. Now, instead of not responding after the first print job it no longer prints after the second print request. Restored my system back before IE11 install and it now prints fine again.
