    Please help.
    I open System Prefs and click 'Print & Fax'. I click + to add a printer. The dialog box opens for a few seconds and then closes. Just that window. I cannot add a printer at all or even print anything for that matter. I ran Printer Therapy and it finds nothing wrong. Same with TechTool Pro. Nothing seems to be wrong except this. Someone please help. This is a disaster. I even Logged out and tried a different user and it does the same thing!
    I am running the latest software for everything.

    Did you ever delete all the print drivers in the Library to save disk space?

    No, never did. This just started or at least I just noticed it. Haven't tried to print in a while.

    I am going to feel like a tech support guy in India when I say this, but have you checked for Apple software updates and rebooted your computer?

    Not a bad suggestion, but yes and yes.

    Dude, I hate to give up on you, but I am out of ideas at the moment. Perhaps, someone else might be able to takeover on the troubleshooting.

    Have you repaired permissions?
    Does the dialog box close. Even if you don't have a printer plugged in to the mac?
