Eye-rolling and need for help

My employer wanted me to installed MacAfee Security 6 on my computer, which is the server for our LAN, including the printer. We use XP-Pro.

So I did. Twice. First time, I did it on "my" part, the part called "front desk." And no one else could print from their desktop machines. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it on the admin part of the desktop. Before the security software booted, other people could print. After it booted, they couldn't.

I just uninstalled it, because it's seriously vital for people to be able to print (and not just our Bridezilla.)

My employer does *not* understand why this is a problem. After all, she installed it on *her* computer (a workstation, not the server) and other people can print just fine.

She asked me if I'd moved it to my desktop. *Rolls eyes.* It installed in the exact same folder both times I installed it - c:/program files/mcaffee or whatever. The one it installed itself. Because you can't install a program just in the network.

Can anyone tell me how to configure it so it doesn't block LAN printer commands?
