Installing a printer on XP without administrator rightsLocked
Hi, I have a question and I hope you can help me out…
My mate who works in York is trying to install a printer on his work PC which is running XP. But every time he tries he gets a message telling him he does not have the rights go seek the administrator (or some such phrase)..He called me and asked for my advice..I laughed and said are you logged on as the administrator or at least logged on with administrator rights..To cut a long story short…I directed him into user accounts where I was quite surprised when he said there is no administrator user set up, just his account. The user is set up with min rights…The computer is a hand me down from a different office and the old owner has been posted..
So my question is how does he sort this out?
