    Not able to print shipping labels from USPS website in Internet Explorer 8

    We downloaded Internet Explorer 8 a few months before. We have been effectively printing postage labels from the USPS website for some months even after we altered to Internet Explorer 8 as well as after that all of the sudden about 3 days ago while we go through the complete procedure of the label as well as get to where we pay as well as print, usually a window pops up that includes the label...as well as now a yellow bar at the top pops up stating that the download has been blocked through internet explorer. While attempting to print a shipping label from the USPS website the "Print Box" does not show as well as the label does not print.

    You may attempt as well as solve this problem by putting your PC in clean boot state. Putting your machine in clean boot state assists in recognizing if any third party applications or startup items are causing the problem. If the PC is attached to a network, network policy settings may stop you. We powerfully advise that you do not utilize the System Configuration utility to adjust the advanced boot choices on the PC unless a Microsoft support engineer directs you to perform this. Doing this may create the PC unusable.

    You have to Log on to the system by utilizing an account that has administrator privileges. After that you have to press Start, after that give msconfig.exe in the Start Search field, and after that press ENTER to start the System Configuration Utility. On the General tab, press Selective Startup, in addition to after that press to clear the Load startup items check field. On the Services tab, press to choose the Hide all Microsoft services check field, and afterward select Disable all. Then you have to press OK, and after that press restart.

    The USPS website specially calls the Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Reader Internet Explorer plug-in to make the "Print Box" including the shipping label. While PDF Converter Professional 4 is installed it becomes the default PDF viewer in Internet Explorer except the user specifies otherwise. This consequence in the USPS site being not capable to call the Adobe plug-in.

    The PDF Converter Professional 4 plug-in for Internet Explorer has to be disabled so as to print shipping labels from the USPS website. To disable the plug-in you have to shut Internet Explorer. After that press Start and then go to Run over there you have to give regsvr32 /u "C:\Program Files\ScanSoft\PDF Professional 4.0\bin\IEPDFPlus.ocx”. After that press "OK" as well as a message will pop up that un-registering "IEPDFPlus.ocx" has "Succeeded". Then hit "OK".
