I thought maybe I posted this in the wrong spot, so I'm trying here

Well I got a new printer for Christmas.
The Epson Stylus Photo R340
From the first day I went to install it. I have had issues.
It shows the drivers installing from the installation CD and the printer seems to work fine.
(I have printed CD/DVDs, and documents with no problems)
The problem is everytime I turn the computer on, or the printer off and then on again.
Windows says "Found new Hardware" and attempts to install the printer again.
I then get an "Installation failed, Access denied error"

I have attempted to uninstall and re-install the printer about 7 times.(re-reading the directions each time) and trying a new USB cable.
I even cleaned the registry with Crap Cleaner to be sure there was no old printer issues.

I then contacted Epson Tech Support, and they said this sounds like a microsoft issue.
Like the computer is'nt recognizing me as the administrator. I am the only user of this computer and have the admin. account.

I am running the following:

Windows XP SP2
2.08 ghz
1 gig RAM
120 gb harddrive w/ 53gb free
4.3 gb harddrive (recovery drive)

All my updates are done and I have had no other issues installing other things..
(2 DVD R/RW drives,Linksys wireless G router and an Epson 2480 scanner )

Hopefully someone has an idea, this is getting annoying.
Thanks!
