yes this machine only. Other 4 PC's can all print fine from the Guest Account. These are in a business center of a condo building.

weird. unfortunately I'm not sure we'll find a "fix"... maybe just a work around for the time being. due to the fact that all other machines on the same build/os can print with standard or guest accounts I would have to assume it's narrowed down to your OS on 'this' machine.

Unless there were permission changes made to "restrict" these account even more, we've basically done everything I can think of. Only thing left to do would be to repair the OS.

OK well I have only the HP Recovery Discs. Any way to just 'repair' the OS without losing my customizations? I have not further restricted this particular machine in any way.

To be honest, I'm not the best recovery guy in this forum. I would highly suggest creating a new thread to address the recovery. Maybe someone will stumble upon this particular thread and give a fresh idea?

Just to close out the thread, I gave up on this. I rolled back the system (System Restore) to when I first configured the machines. I had to reinstall Microsoft Security Essentials and Returnil, but everything else was fine. Installing the printer was a breeze. All is back to good.

I've been plagued Trojans and re-directs lately with a W7 Standard Account which I thought and taught was the right choice for safer web browsing. Not as many system ports open to attack. So, if MS recommends the Standard Account over Administrator for safety reasons, is using the Guest...
