Im using a laptop that has no printer...

Specs: Windows 7
For sometime, my laptop decided that whenever i clicked a link or a program sent me to the internet, and that program wasnt a standard internet page, it would come up with a window saying 'before you can print you need to select a printer' and prevent me from doing anything farther. There is no reason for it to do this, it has no printer connected. I have tryed to install printers, but they havent worked (drivers never installed properly...) and that almost definitly caused the problem, but I haven the faintest idea how to stop this from happening...
Just to let you know how annoying this can be, and to give you a better idea of the problem, this prevents me from using buttons in standard programs like microsoft word that connect to the internet. The button I wish to use the most that connects to the internet is 'help'

Try installing a virtual printer - 'for example CutePdf' - this will install a 'printer', no drivers required, and then set it as default. It's a useful tool as well.
