Only Administrator can print

    Non networked computer with USB printer. When logged in as
    administrator, or a user in the administrator group, printer works
    fine. When logged in as any other user you cannot print.

    You can see the printer in control panel | printers. When you have the
    printer console open you can see the document to print appear for a few
    seconds and then it goes away, I guess b/c it thinks its been printed.

    Other USB devices work fine when logged in as non-administrator. I
    tried updating the USB Printer Support in Device Manager.
