On this computer any user I give admin rights to can print just fine. I set the security so that the everyone user has rights to the printer but if they don't have admin their print job just gets stuck in the que. It is an HP deskjet 6127, previously it was getting an error message about "A program running on this computer is trying to display a message." when a non admin would try to print and the print job would get stuck. I disabled the Interactive Services Detection service and it got rid of that message but the print job gets stuck just the same. It doesn't get an error message, it just says printing and never goes anywhere.

I also tried giving everyone read/write access to the print driver folder, that hasn't helped.

Rights/privileges...appear not to be an issue here. If a print job is generated, that's an indication to me that rights have nothing to do with what occurs.

I'd check the printer manufacturer's site for possible documentation re such problems/errors as are spat out by the printer.

While you say rights are not an issue, I don't understand why this user can print if they are given admin but can't when they don't have it. I have given admin rights to people that have the issue and they can print just fine after that.


Also I think I saw your link already or something similar. I already disabled the service and it prevents that screen from popping up but it still won't print for non admin users.

Another thing, this computer has Dragon Naturally speaking on it, I don't know if that would affect it at all.
