Even though that's a fix for 2000 couldn't you edit permission in the XP registry for these three files to give all users admin rights to them?  Of course this will depend on your network structure and existing policies.

Thanks.. that fix was for vista, not for windows 2000. in my case , i have windows 2000 professional on the user's workstation.
Edit permissions in the registry? how would i go about doing that? i gave them full access permissions on the security tab of the HP folder and still didnt work.

Sorry got XP and 2K 'round the wrong way!
Find the entries in the registry for each of the services then right-click on the folder containing the key on the left panel and go for permissions - try adding all users on that machine and giving them full control
