Microsoft office programs crashing + wordpad

Bizarre issue at work today which meant that word crashed on startup, and strangely wordpad too, but not excel… More strangely it effected various people at random around the office… It took me + google 5 mins to figure it out but our wonderful IT department at least 2 hours.

The cause? If you’re default printer was a network printer that was switched off.

The solution. Change your default printer.

What IT did? Reinstall office, and started rebuilding peoples profiles!!!
