iPrint and (printing on) Windows 7 SP1

Hi!
Sorry to say, I was stupid enough to install W7 SP1 to solve some problems I had, but ... I raises more problems than expected. So, my question is probably nothing to-do with iPrint, but anyway, maybe we can share experiences. After SP1 also printing start to act slower than expected. Sometimes much slower. Using iPrint v05.56.00 and NW 6.5 SP8 (with patches) as server. I see on W7 machine that it does something with printing and ... it takes time.
Any ideas?
More thanks, Alar.

NovAlf,

I have not had any problems with Windows 7 SP1 (on 64 bit), though I must
say I don't do much iPrint printing from Windows 7. Note that in the
meantime, there is the 5.60 iPrint client which contains some bugfixes.

Hi and thanks!
Well, I'm almost certain it is not connected to iPrint, but I have to ask. Strange thing is that all W7 machines slowing down after applying SP1. I mean, for users. "Not responding" (even in MS Office 2010!), slow printing ... etc. Removing SP1 wasn't helping, well, something was changed in deep areas, probably. I wasn't able to reproduce all this with my temporary (DLU volatile) account. So, on Friday I thought before to try clean install just create another DLU (not volatile) user account which suffered with this "slowing down" thing. And, guess what, new account haven't this problem. Mh. I moved back files from old account and ... printing was ok, also everything else seems to be normal. Don't know. Anyway, I'll see tomorrow when all network is also "loaded". This explains why I couldn't reproduce this with temp user, also users who have created accounts after applying SP1 ...
More thanks, Alar.

Hi!
Well, must say, creating new user profile did solve this problem. Strange, but truth! And, seems to, not on one W7 computer.
