The date and time prints at the bottom of everything I print. No matter if it is from Firefox, IE, my emails or even a word document. I have tried removing the header/footers but because it prints on any and everything I print, I think it might be a desktop setting...?? I am operating in Windows 7. Please help.

Can you go to your Devices and Printers in your Start Menu, and check your settings for your printer? You are right, it could just be that a weird setting is enabled there forcing a time stamp on all your printouts.

Hello,

In Firefox, in the Page Setup, there should be options under Header & Footer to remove the Date and Time from printing. I think the setting defaults back to including the Date and Time, so you may need to change it every time you print something unfortunately.

I checked this setting and everything says "blank"

I am back... it started printing the date again at the bottom of EVERYTHING... I checked this setting (that you suggested and it worked before) again and it is telling me that it is not enabled, meaning it shouldn't be printing. The way that it is currently set is the same way that it was set when the date stopped printing before....What can I do to stop it now?
