Printer 'access denied' error
When you are trying to access the printer, and your system printer driver files are not installed, it results in 'access denied' error. The use of an incompatible driver for a printer will not support the operation of the printer device. If any printer files are corrupt due to a virus attack, this will also cause access problems. If the printer is not properly installed on the Operating System may cause a problem with printer access.
If the installed printer on Windows Vista is not compatible with the Operating System, it will cause an error like printer 'access denied'. If such an error occurs, you cannot use the printer. If you find that the printer is not working, it may be due to the incorrect driver for the printer. If you have installed an incompatible driver, then the printer will not work.
If driver files used for the printer are not compatible, it will cause a error message. You can install a printer using a printer CD which is built-in on your system. Otherwise, you can visit the manufacturers website and download the specific and proper driver files for using the printer device. Another way is to remove and then reinstall the printer through the ‘Printers and Faxes’ command on the 'Start' menu.
