After installing SP2 no printers show in the printers and
faxes box. Printers are there but do not show. I can only
print to the windows default printer due to the fact that
I cannot access the printers to change the default. I
cannot remove these devices either or the drivers. While
attempting to remove drivers, I get a message saying
that the printer is in use. I currently have the
following printers installed HP 1300n, Lexmark X1150, and
Adobe Acrobat.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not sure if this will help you, but I figures it out on my computer. All
I had to do was set each user to have administrator user rights, then restart
my computer, then set user back to limited and viola I could print. Wierd!
Took me forever to figure it out too.
