    I have a computer running windows 7 ultimate and another computer (that hosts the printer) with windows 7 home premium. the host computer can run the printer fine and the guest computer can too on my account. but if on the windows 7 ultimate computer somebode else logs on, the printer driver isn't installed. is there a fix???

    Try downloading and reinstalling the latest driver for the printer.

    I must admit I am a bit lost on this one. Maybe you should try and install the printer drivers under the User that the printer does not work for.
