After installing doPDF, I was getting an pop up error several times a day which stated "You cannot use doPDF as a shared network printer" I put up with just closing the error. Now since my last re-boot it comes up constantly, several times a minute. I would like to continue using the software, but not with this continuous error.

The prpoerties on doPDF in the printers and faxes window indicate that doPDF is NOT set up as a network printer.

Usually that message should show up if dopdf is accessed via a terminal server or remote desktop connection, so it's strange it shows up upon restart.

Try this. Unninstall completely doPDF as mentioned here - - and after you restart your computer if that pop-up doesn't show reinstall it and let us know if it works.
