Domain users cannot print but administrators can

We have a Server 2003 environment with AD (in 2000 mode).  Our print server was working great until today...domain users cannot print.  My account is setup for domain admin and i can print just fine.  I removed the rights from my account and the printers on my machine show as "unable to connect..."  I checked permissions in the drivers system folder and read and execute was checked for everyone.  I'm really confused as to why this would happen all of the sudden.  None of our users can print so we are in a jam!!

Sounds like an autoupdate glitch.
Or it could be unsynchronised policies.
Try forcing a Group policy update.

The printers seemed to have lost their IP's for some reason?  I statically reassigned them and everything seems to be working.

Hmmm... May be some virus is trying to change the ip's. I had this same IP problem in my system when connecting to the net... Check for viruses tonykman....
