    Thanks for this excellent suggestion. I tried it and the result seems to be even better than my restored backup of a few months ago. As far as I can tell, this has completely fixed my problem with the printer and left everything else intact and up to date.
    Glad this worked for you. A repair reinstall often solves many problems and it's pretty painless.

    Unable to print multiple copies on Brother Printer


    For whatever it's worth, I think I know what caused my problem in the first place. Manually cleaning up C:\Windows\Temp to save space seems to cause the problem, probably due to deleting BROMJ985DW.INI which, oddly, is in C:\Windows\Temp.

    I say "seems" and "probably" because the behavior doesn't seem consistent. Sometimes deleting the file or folder causes the problem and sometimes it doesn't. So far, I can't find any explanation for the inconsistencies, but I've seen an apparent relationship enough times to make me think there is one. Despite wishing I could understand the apparent inconsistencies, I've decided it's not worth any more time trying to do so.

    Maybe the INI file gets modified if you change any of the printing parameters and then it gets written to the Windows temp folder due to sloppy programming by the manufacturer.

    Maybe just let Disk Cleaner do the temp dirty work since it's probably less aggressive than manual cleaning.

    Probably.

    I agree, though, at the moment, I'm having trouble getting cleanmgr to run correctly, but that's another subject.
