User has admin privileges
Iam facing this problem in only one pc in my domain .I tried to install in other pc's;found there is no problem in printer as well my domain's active directory also
Please kindly help to get the printer installed in that pc since it will be a great pain for me to backup ,format and reload the pc
N.B: Past two days I googled and applied the registry tweaks but there is no effect
Thanks in advance

Thanks,

    Did you try going to the manufacturer's website to get an updated driver?

    I've gotten this several times when trying to add a printer and opting to use the necessary driver that's already installed on the pc. Removing and then reinstalling the driver has always cleared it up for me.

    Hi snadam

    I might have rebooted the pc around 50 times

    Any solution you can suggest?

    Thanks in advance

    Merged - Please try to avoid double posting :)
    We responded to the Year 2000 issue with "Y2K" solutions...isn't this the kind of thinking that got us into trouble in the first place?

    Hi everybody

    I solved the problem by dowloading cleanspl utility from microsoft and deleting all the printers and uninstallling all the printer drivers and rebooting the pc and installing the printer again solved my problem

    Glad you got it fixed. Oddly enough, this is the first time I've been able to see the picture.
