Adding network printers in Windows 7 requires admin password

When my network was all XP, users were able to add network printers without requiring and admin username and password. Now I have rolled out Windows 7 to all users and whenever they want to add a network printer, it asks them for an administrator account.

How do I remove the administrator requirement? I want users to be able to add printers on their own. FYI... all my network printers are on Server 2003.

you can fix the problem in the local gpo (gpedit.msc) or with a domain gpo.

Computer Configuration -> Security Options -> User Rights Assignment -> Load and delete Devicedrivers
