Problem Communicating With The Printer

I am running Windows XP SP2 and have an account for each member of the family on the PC.

If my son has been on using his limited account and I log onto my account after him, the computer seems to lose the printer. When I go to print anything I get an error message saying "Problem Communicating With The Printer".

A reboot sorts the problem, but is inconvenient.

Is there a setting I can change to stop this happening?

The printer is a Lexmark X-85 all in one printer , scanner and photocopier. The other functions are not effected.

Lexmark have a patch/updated driver for this problem click here= and look under Patches.

Also look under Driver for Windows xp.
