Temp files in the Winntsystem32spoolprinter directory

I have a Win2k Pro workstation where the user has Power User rights. Every time the user prints (especially pdf), it stores a Temp file in the Winntsystem32spoolprinter directory. The other Win2k boxes I have with admin rights do not store the temp files.

Requires Free Membership to View

Check the permissions on the Winntsystem32spoolprinter folder. I bet the Power Users do not have to delete permissions at the folder level.
