> vista does not allow printer use on the guest account
You shouldn't be using the Guest account anyway. See below for an
explanation. If you need further help, read the links under the "How To
Post" section so you can get the help you want.
Do not use the Guest account you see in the User Accounts applet in Control
Panel. The Guest account is a special system account, not one meant for
when you are feeling hospitable. It is disabled by default in Windows XP,
Vista, Linux, Unix, and OS X for a reason.
"The Guest account is intended for users who require temporary access to the
system. However, if this account is enabled, a security risk may exist
because an unauthorized user could gain anonymous access to the system
through this account."
So if you enabled Guest, disable it now and create a Standard/Limited
(Vista, XP Pro/XP Home) for your visitors. Call the new user account
something like "Visitor".
