Users other than administrator cannot log on

    Hi. I am using windows XP SP2 with 2 computers connected together via a
    wireless connection using XP to find the wireless. One computer has a
    printer but the laptop uses the wireless connection to print via the other
    PC.

    As long as I have logged on once as administrator then there are no
    problems. But if the first person to log on after a reboot is not the
    administrator then they are unable to access the PC with the printer from
    the laptop (or indeed any shared files on that PC). However they are still
    able to access the internet.

    Please can you suggest where I might look for a solution.

    Thanks

    What if you give administrator rights to the user account you are havng
    problems with. See if that helps you out. Maybe its one of those wired
    Windows things.

    Thanks for the idea. However I don't want to do that for other users aren't
    that careful what they click on when browsing
