I have just finished reinstalling Vista SP2 32-bit on a pc.  Now I cannot install the network printer on it.  Keep getting nice pop up box that says "Connect to printer.  Windows cannot connect to the printer.  the process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process."
I verified all network setting on the pc are correct, I have tried a different printer on the network and get same thing.  I have restarted local print spooler, restarted print spooler on server.  I have restarted the pc.  I am logged on with full domain admin privs.  Any ideas?

I had trouble with a HP USB printer once.  The instructions had to be followed exactly.  I had to wait and plug the thing in exactly at the right step/time or it wouldn't work.  But, that was on an XP Pro machine.
Disable User Access Controls and try installing the printer again.
