Client: Windows 7 Professional x64

I'm having problems again getting my printers to map to the Windows 7 client. I do have the x64 drivers on the printer server and if I log into the client machine with my admin account, all the printers get mapped. When I log into the client using a normal user account nothing gets mapped so it's a security thing somewhere. On the client machine I went into gpedit.msc and under computer config-->Admin templates-->Printers I set the Point and click to enabled and Point and Click restrictions to accept anything in the forest and not to prompt. When I run gpresult under Denied GPOs I get 13 denied entries (which equal the number of printers I'm trying to map). Reason Denied: Inaccessible

Am I missing something?

Thanks all,
