Word 2007 hangs at startup waiting for network printer
Often happens to me (in the office, only place where I use Windows) when I am in a VPN and want to open a Doc. I only have network printers. No local one. Solution? Add a PostScript printer (use a HP Color Laserjet PS driver) and set its port to FILE. Set this as the default printer. This one is always available and thus Word doesn't hang itself waiting for it.
