Ok heres a whooper for you all....
An agent, in an office I support, has a mini network of 3 computers set up in his office. All of them are in the same work group "Minds".
There is one main computer, running windows xp, that host all the shares including printers. On this machine there are 3 local printers installed, and shared out. All the machines including the server machine can print to them just fine, the thing thats crazy is when you go into the printer control pannel their are no printer listed there, none at all and it won't let you add any new printers.
if you browse to the server machine you see them all, (start -> run->\\ip address)
but again you can't see them in control pannel and you can't remove or add any new printers.
There are no error messages, when you click add printer it acts lick you didn't click anything.
The server computer is running every norton product you can think of (I currently have them all disabled)
I checked for viruses adware and spyware...
Other than the printer issue things are running good.
Thanks for your time
