 Printing Garbage to a printer from excel

When I try to print (Win 98) an excel (excel 97) worksheet to a printer. It
prints out the worksheet but continues to print pages with "smiley
characters" on 1 or 2 lines of each page. This continues until the
associated laser printer is turned off.

I have scanned the machine for viruses and explored the excel worksheet to
isolate if any macros are present in the worksheet, all to no avail.

I have attached the associated example of the "smiley characters" .

Any ideas would be appreciated,

Thanks,

Anthony

I've had a similar problem.
If turning the printer of & on and rebooting doesn't help, re-install
printer driver.
