Verify the Remote Procedure Call service is started by doing the following: Start>Run: Services.msc, in the services window find the RPC service and make sure it is started.  If not, start it and try to print again.

Also, try reinstalling the printer drivers or try setting up the printer settings again.

1. disable the "simple sharing"
2. determine if the "file and printer sharing" is enabled in nic properties (but i guess it is, cause you already shared the printer)
3. antivirus / firewall  issue - disable it and check
