Another day life with issues. Frigging MS Word hung every time I tried to select a different font. Why me? It always happens when we really want some program to work for us.
Now how do we fix this? This is what came to my mind.
- It got to be some font I installed lately. Go to Wordpad and tried changing the font. No issues there. If not, I would open Fonts window in Control panel and check every font manually.
- Found something about printer drivers causing this particular issue. I have deleted the printers I have installed recently. (Click Start Orb button, select Devices and Printers and delete the printers).
Bingo, second solution did the magic. Hope it helps.

Posting on wrong blog. But to set “Send as behalf of” permission, go to Mailbox properites, Mail Flow settings and Delivery Options.
Deleting unused printers fixed it for me. Thanks for saving me a lot of time!
Thanks a lot man, I had the same issue, I deleted the Windows default Fax and 2 other virtual printers and somehow it did the magic. Pretty odd, but works. Thank you!

Hello Mokation: Which solution fixed the issue? I am curious.
Till now, I’m still confused.
Every time it takes 2 minutes or more to move the mouse inside my file. I deleted the printer and other devices but nothing worked out.
