    You've got 5 printers on one PC? Is this box a print server for an office network or what?

    Assuming the username/password dialog you see is for USB drivers, best thing to do is give the user admin rights for one login session on the PC. When the USB drivers install successfully, log the user out and remove him from the admin group so he's only a standard user. Next time he logs in he should be able to use the printers.
