Uninstall the printer. When it comes to install again, install it for all users - it was probably installed for current user only.

Hi, i thought about that, but there was no option to do so when i did it. ive also tried installing the printer on another area. that didn't work. Is there something in Windows where you can share a printer? thanks

Hmmmm. Right-click on the printer icon in Control Panel - Printers and Faxes and click Share. If it says share with other users of this computer, you can do so. Normally it is set up on installation.
