Dear All,

In windows 2000/XP based environment , I was facing the following error :-

Whenever I try to take printing from my network printer (printer attached to other windows based system) , I got the error " Unable to connect the printer , access denied , printer could not be started" .

Now the problem is resolved permanently , with simple steps.

1.) Goto the computer with which you have attached the Printer .
2.) Open its Computer management dialog box by Right click onto MY Computer ICON and choose "Manage" option .
3.) It will open the Computer Management windows .
4.) Goto Local users and computer and Click on USERS .
5.) There will be guest account , which is disabled while you working onto domain/workgroup environment .
6.) Just enable this "Guest " User account , by clicking onto it and goto Properties , then General Tab , Uncheck the "Account is disabled" option and restart , that Computer with which you have attached the printer physically.
7.)Done.
