I have windows 2008 server as an Active directory. And for some reason that i don't know yet, sometime users get a screen to update printer driver when they print. But when they click on install driver, they cannot do it because it ask for an administrator.

how can i remove this protection and let everybody install driver update

thanks

You could add the users to the local admin group which will give them the admin rights you are requesting, but I don't recommend that for security reasons (unless you want to spend your life fighting viruses and spyware).

Instead, my company uses a package deployment software to manage our installations and we deploy printer drivers removing the need for users to do so.
