Error printing to Phaser 6180N

I recently swapped out a switch on my lan at home, and afterwards I was unable to print to my network-connected 6180N.  I can go to the printer's status page at its IP address on my browser, no problem.  My wife can print no problem from her computer.  So I know the printer is talking ok on the network.


My wife's computer is running Vista32, and I'm running Vista64.


To elaborate on "unable to print": initially, the printer queue listed the printer as Offline.  I deleted the printer and reinstalled it (6180N PS driver).  It no longer said it was offline, but when I print, after about a minute, the queue says the Status is "Error - Printing".  I tried printing a PDF file, and I tried printing a simple notepad text document, same result.  I tried installing the 6180N PS driver from the Xerox web site, same behavior.


Any suggestions?  I tried the Microsoft MATS troubleshooter, but it couldn't identify any problem.

Re: Error printing to Phaser 6180N

Fixed it.  McAfee somehow decided to start blocking a print spooler dll from talking to the network.  Probably operator error.
