HP officejet G85 and Windows 7

I cannot seem to get G85 to work with Win 7.  If I choose it as a default printer it will carsh Word 2007.  Windows Update cannot seem to get the correct driver.  HP site reers to Windows Update.  Please help!

Re: HP officejet G85 and Windows 7

Probably not much help, since I encountered no problems: Upgraded a ThinkPad with 32 bit Vista Ultimate to 32 bit Win 7 Home Premium, so performed a "clean install". I was **bleep** about following the recommendations from the Win 7 evaluation package, including removing a lot of the manufacturer's software; then reinstalled only as much as I needed after the upgrade, including the BIOS update. I did not install the G85 software from HP's disc. Win 7 auto-recognized the G85 and set it as the default. I installed Office 2007 new, and everything has performed flawlessly for three weeks now.
