When I  log in as local administrator I can not add a local printer.
When I go to security settings / local policies / user rights assignment and check the option for load & unload device driver all it has in there is 5-1-5-32-550.

How do I clear this so I can add devices ??

Is there a domain?

If not, then there should be a folder at c:\windows\system32\group policy (pretty sure thats the location, maybe without the system32). You should be able to delete the contents, and reboot, with no GPO's configured.

(never tried this, but have read several articles that mention this, so it might be wise to copy the contents out to a safe location, just in case...)
