Fix Error : Windows Cannot connect to the printer. Access is denied. when add Printer on Windows Vista and Windows 7

When you use a user account and Connect to Printer

Error : " Windows Cannot connect to the printer. Access is denied. "


To resolve this issue, You need to go into the local group policy on the Windows 7 machines.
Note: User must be an administrator in order to open the Local Group Policy Editor

Click on Start button, type gpedit.msc in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER. Press Yes if User Account Control (UAC) dialog prompts.

Go to Group Policy:
Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Printers\Point and Print Restrictions | SET TO DISABLED
Restart your computer

This is the fix I was given and seems to work.
