Cannot install network printer

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?
