Printer is now defaulting to ProFile PDF Export even though my default printer in Print Setup is an actual printer

As with many other people, we were having problems getting documents to print recently.  Upon calling Profile, it was suggested to run "proreg.exe" as admin and deregistering then reregistering all.  This worked and allowed printing to work again, but it has slowed Profile down considerably.

To try to fix the slowness issue we updated to 2016.0.8.  Profile has now defaulted to the printer "ProFile PDF Export" anytime we print.  I have looked in the print setup options and it says our Canon printer is the default for everything (T1, T2, T3, FX).  Anybody have any ideas to fix this and make our Canon printer the default as Profile says it is?

People come to ProFile for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
