Correct it by correcting your GPO, rather than screwing around on each individual machine...
which would seem to me to largely defeat the purpose of having GPOs.
Like all printer manufacturers, Canon periodically releases updated printer drivers for its product lines.
These updates often provide enhancements and fix bugs or other issues discovered after the initial driver release.
Other updates provide compatibility for new operating systems.
Since drivers are responsible for facilitating communication between the operating system and the printer, keeping them up-to-date is important and should be part of your company’s routine printer maintenance.
I have ESET NOD32 installed and it tells me that there are supposed to be updates for my printer drivers available on Windows Update.(And yes, this is the "easy way" to redeploy this network printer.Change the installed printer settings in the GPO.) Settings applied by GPO supersede local admin rights, which would be why you're getting access denied, even with administrator rights.About The Author: Jay Geater is the President and CEO of Solvusoft Corporation, a global software company focused on providing innovative utility software.He is a lifelong computer geek and loves everything related to computers, software, and new technology.You can obtain Canon drivers from Windows Update or the manufacturer’s website.
