    Point and Print Windows 7 grrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Right I'm deploying around 40 Win7 boxes and I've come across an issue with point and print (don't get the issue with Vista)

    Basically if a non admin user tries to install a network printer they get prompted for admin rights to do the install. Which is all well and good EXCEPT I have point and print restrictions turned off so there shouldn't be ANY restrictions on non-admins installing the printers. grrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Vista boxes are configured the same and DON'T have an issue, which is most annoying.

    Even if I turn on point and print restrictions but set it to NOT give users elevated privileges warnings they still get them, double grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

    Have you turned off both the point and print restriction policies? Windows 7 introduced a per computer policy as well as the per user one. Make sure you switch both off.
