    When I try to add a standard tcp/ip printer port, either directly or through
    the wizard - after entering the IP Address of the printer and clicking
    "next" I get the error message:

    Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry
    for the inconvenience. With the option of submitting the error to MS.

    Immediately afterward, I get a messsage that the "Dr. Watson Postmortim
    debugger has encountered a problem" and needs to close"

    Has anyone else encountered this or have any idea what to do?

    Not sure, but if it's a Unix-style printer you could try the LPR client.
    (Under 'other network file and print services' in Windows Add/remove.) I find
    this far more dependable than TCP/IP printing.
