Slow Printing following a Windows update

Slow printing to your printer can be caused by a recent Windows Update.

The Windows update overrides the default driver settings (normally set to print via an IP address) and replaces it with a WSD port, this process has been shown to create significant amounts of network traffic and slow printing (up to an hour) for a single page document.
