    Internet Explorer 8 printing blank pages


    I have a IE8 as my default browser which came along with windows 7. My problem is that when try to print a particular web page the output comes as a blank page. I use HP Smart Web for Printing. Is it the IE problem or a printer problem ?? Why Internet Explorer 8 is printing blank pages ??? Any suggestions ??

    First, check whether it is a performance problem or an error message is created by corrupt Temporary Internet Files or there is a problem with the other cached information that is used by the IE 8, delete the cached data.

    1. Open Internet Explorer 8.
    2. Click Security and then click Delete Browsing History.
    3. In Delete Browsing History area, click Delete.

    The reason for this behavior through Internet Explorer is the absence of a folder in C: \ Users on Windows 7. You may have cleaned up the folder without knowing it when you ran a cleaning software. To solve the problem, try closing all instances of Internet Explorer 8, and then open a new window of IE8 to print something. If you get the impression, the folder has been created automatically. If you can not print, even after restarting, you must manually create the folder.

    Some Internet Explorer add-ons, such as ActiveX controls and browser toolbars, these addons are used by some web pages to provide an improved look. An error may occur if an add-on is corrupt or if an add-on conflicts with Internet Explorer. To determine if the error is caused by an add-on, run Internet Explorer in "No Add-ons" mode. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Click Start and then type Internet Explorer in the Start Search box.
    2. Click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons). Internet Explorer opens without add-ons, toolbars or plug-ins.
    3. Try Internet Explorer to verify that it works correctly
