Hi guys

This is weird.
The administrator account cannot print to the (networked) printer (including test print)
The public user account can print without a problem. (including test print)
Same computer, same driver and setup. (Vista)
I've run Malwarebytes - no bugs - and I will check for viruses as soon as I can.

I've tried temporarily turning off the UAC on Administrator account but it still won't print

Any ideas appreciated especially if you've resolved this!
Thanks in advance

Give this a try.
* Find the SPOOL directory, typically within your %SYSTEM32% folder.
* Find the TEMP directory, typically within your %SYSTEM% folder.
* Right-click on each and select Properties, then the Security tab.
* Assign Full Control to "Everybody".
