I'm running XP pro, with several user accounts, of which I am the administrator. Does anyone know of a way to restrict users from using the USB printer? If I could just put a password on it, it would stop my housemates from printing behind my back!
Any advice appreciated.

Yes actually. Go to Control Panel> Printers and Faxes> right click on the printer icon> properties> 'security' tab. You can set your permissions/denials in there.

Won't let me log in with other users now - some kind of security rights problem - and takes me back to login screen. quite odd.
