USB printer sloooowww

Hi there,

I've bought an HP printer recently.

My problem comes from the administration rights conflicts in win 7.
When I call the printer from the administrator account, everything works perfect as it should.
However when logged in as a user the printer takes about 2 min between call and print....And I can't access to print settings..
I'd like to set it up so it work the way it should...
My printer is a USB device.

When going to device and printer as an administrator, I get the list.
When going as a user, I get nothing on page....

please help somebody

If you log on as administrator and go to the printers, look at the printer properties by right clicking on the printer properties and then select the security tab. It might work ok if you check all the security blocks for all users to be able to control the printer. See if this helps after applying your changes and then logging back on with the 2nd account.
