    I'm running a brand new WinXP Pro machine at work. Being brand new, I had to load in the network printers used in the office. To do this, I logged in as my network administrator account.

    Problem is this. After I have installed everything, when the user (without administrator rights) logged in to the PC, he cannot see the printers that I have installed. Under Ctrl Panel -> Printers and Faxes he cannot see any printers listed. But when I relog in as my account, I can see ALL the network printers that I previously installed.

    Can anyone offer me any advise on this please?
