when the print option pops up you have a little check box that says print to file, uncheck it.

Make sure you default printer settings are not set to 'print to file' by opening hardware/printers. right click on the printer icon, choose print properties and make sure the print to file is not checked off. Save/OK and close.
If the default settings are set this way, then you will need to change it every time you print, but if you fix the default, it will be easier.
Also check the default for the program to see if it is the default for Acrobat Reader (or whatever you are using) is correct by opening the program without a PDF opened and go to print properties, change it there and OK/close it. This should reset the default for the program also.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
