Win32 error code returned by the print processor: 5. Access is denied

Today I came across a problem whereby some users could print but others the print job goes through but then nothing happens.

Upon investigation in the log file located: Event Viewer\Application and Services Logs\Microsoft\Windows\PrintService, I got the error above for the users that could not print.

I enabled write access for the handful of users to the following folder and they were able to print again: system32/spools/printers

Hope it helps
