No the idea Tomas Franco offered did not work for me. I tried it three times.

BUT...I would recommend it to anyone who has this problem as I used the method to correct a similar problem I had with my UPS and it's low battery alarm.

Thanks to all of you for your efforts and concern.

I have three user accounts but can only print on the administrative account in which I installed the printer. I installed it as shown below but it still will not print in the other two user accounts. I wish to have my grandchildren use this printer from the guest account.

Devices and Printers
Printer properties
Sharing tab
Sharing this printer is checked
Security tab
Permissions for everyone
Print allow is checked.

In addition to Word 2007 I installed a Win95 copy of works and it will only print in the one account also so I am sure it is a Windows 7 software problem.
any ideas?
