I have noticed that the combination of Mathematica/HP inkjets/Windows 98
seems to be a problem.  I often find that, after printing from
Mathematica, Windows 98 will later hang during shutdown. I use
Symantec's LiveUpdate Pro, which suggested that I install a driver
patch for my HP printer.  If anything, the results are now less stable
than before the update.  Also, sometimes the printer will hang in
midpage of the first page of a multipage output.  The print monitor
application will show the print job as running . Deleting the print job
hangs the monitor application and usually Windows 98 as well. Generally
I have to use a power-down reboot to get going again.
