I have XP Home SP2.

I set up my HP printer but it will only print from the Administrator account
and not a Limited account -- once I made all accounts "Administrators" anyone
could print. How can I allow printing from both Admin and Limited users?

Hi Chris,

Restart in Safe mode, then logon as administrator. Locate this folder and
right click it, choose properties:

C:\Windows\system32\spool

You need to give "everyone" print permissions on the security tab.

How to start in Safe mode:
