    I have a user that presses the print screen button on there keyboard and rather than saving it to the clip board it automaically sends it the printer? Anyone know how to fix this? I'm about to have a quick look on Google.

    Is this an antique? Or a DOS emulator?

    That was how it used to work back in the day before this new-fangled Windows thing!

    After a quick check - I see there is software that will pull this trick on modern Windows. Which is a tad more likely!

    First thing to do is check what was recently installed!

    Isn't it always the same.

    We ran wyse winterms at one place and some bozo at a remote depot decided to download a program off the internet and ran the thing in his personal space on the server and ended up wreaking havoc.
