I have problem printing web pages using Internet Explorer 8. Instead of printing the page, it prints HTML code instead. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

I'm using Windows 7 x64.

Resetting IE settings should fix this problem for you. To do this, follow these steps:

Open Internet Explorer. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options. Click the Advanced tab. Under Reset Internet Explorer Settings, click Reset.

thanks for your suggestion. I tried it out, but still didn't work. =( ...Very strange. – sivabudh Dec 30 '10 at 7:46

This page says making IE your default browser will fix the problem.

This page says that uninstalling and then re-installing it will fix the problem.

I know they mention IE7, but I'd try the default browser one first.

I just resolved this on a system by following the instructions here

Go into your "Default Programs". Select "Set program access and computer defaults". Then chose the "Microsoft Windows" option and apply.
