How To Fix IE 7 Print Error In Windows Vista?

Problem: You cannot print web page in IE 7 that is running in Protected Mode on Windows Vista machine.

Reason: When IE 7 running Protected Mode in Windows Vista, the browser processes require “low integrity” folder to function properly. You might have deleted the low integrity folder accidentally (via disk cleanup program) and this cause IE 7 printing error.

Symptom: IE 7 displays an error message similar to this:

Cannot find “file:///%userprofile%/AppData/Local/Temp/Low/NZ0LISWM.htm”. Make sure the path or Internet address is correct.

After OK button, another Script Error box appears to tell “object required at line 2069 of res://ieframe.dll/preview.dlg”.

Solution: To run IE 7 with Protected Mode off (less secure) or to recreate the missing low integrity folder (%userprofile%/AppData/Local/Temp/Low).

Turn off or disable IE 7 Protected Mode in Windows Vista

If the IE 7 status bar is set to display, there is a Protected Mode status on the right hand side. Just double click the status (as highlighted: “Internet | Protected Mode: On”) to bring up Internet Security Properties dialog box and disable Protected Mode option (as shown in the following screenshot). Then, restart IE 7 or open another new instance (with Protected Mode status shown as Off) to load the page and try to print again.

ICACLS %userprofile%\AppData\Local\Temp\Low /setintegritylevel (OI)(CI)low
