this sounds like a security issue.
When the spooler is started, any pending jobs are scheduled with the spooler
security token rather than the users.
I do not see an inbox driver for the 1018 so I assume you got the driver
The first thing would be contact HP and find out if the driver is creating
temp files somewhere but this will most likely take too long and might not
check the system event log for print errors.
Verify \windows\system32\spool\printers has write access for the Everyone
You can also try opening %temp% (normally \windows\temp ) for Everyone
access but change this back if that does allow the printer to work
download filemon and regmon and find out if the driver is attempting to
create file somewhere that is failing.
