    Disallow "everyone" print permissions on the security tab of the printer's
    properties. How you access the security tab differs depending on which
    version of WinXP you have. In Pro, you need to disable simple file sharing
    in the control panel/folder options/view tab. In Home, you must restart in
    Safe mode and logon as administrator.
