I'm running Windows 7 Pro 32-bit on a desktop machine as part of a wired work domain. When I try to add a network printer through the Add Printer option from the Devices and Printers page I get the following problem: I select "Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer" and click Next but on the search page the progress bar completes in under two seconds and no printers are found. It's like it isn't even searching the network. I've been able to add network printers on this system before (although I am now unable to print to any of them).
Anyone got any ideas? It seems like a service may not be running but nothing obvious leaps out in the service manager.
To be clear: I am on a wired LAN, the network printer is also on the wired LAN. I am not attempting to connect to a wireless or local printer.
