Hide/disable printer in 98SE

Tue Apr 16, 2002 12:45 pm

How can I hide or disable a printer so a child (11 year old, probably certitfied A+........) can't print to it other than removing the printer cable or disabling it in device manager (if you can)?

What version of Windows? If it has enforced user security (NT/2000/XP), you can simply disallow that user for that printer object.
You are false data.

98SE...ya, your best bet would be to give them a user account to use thats not allowed to print, or just use one account that doesnt have rights to print that asks for a user that does have rights...im not sure that even made since in my head
Your bargaining posture is highly dubious.

Oh yeah, 98...I don't like these title bars.

No physical security + no logical security = no hope
