Why do I get a runtime error every time I try to print something?

I get the following message after every time I print something:

“Runtime error, Program C:\windows\System32\rundll32.exe, R6030 – CRT not initialised”

What does this mean and how do I fix it?

    As you did not specify which operating system you're using, I'll assume you're using Windows 7.

    Reinstall the device drivers. Start -> Search/Run: devmgmt.msc

    Scroll down till you find your driver for the printer, right click on it and chose "uninstall". Then restart your computer, when you restart you should be prompted to reinstall the driver, do so. Also check for Windows Updates by going to Start -> Control Panel -> Windows Update -> Check for updates 
    (top left).
