The problem is probably that you have configured neither your PostScript
printer nor Ghostscript (the thing that's rendering PostScript for
GSView) to use the Math fonts that come with Mathematica.

Go see the FAQs at URLs:

http://www.wolfram.com/support/Graphics/Formats/EPS/Ghostscript.html

http://www.wolfram.com/support/Systems/Windows/ManualFontDownload.html

The first cover's adjusting Ghostscript.  The second deals with the 
issue of downloading Type 1 fonts to the printer.

Could you give a more precise description of what you mean by 
"problems"?
