You need to create a Useraccount and a password on your PC. See the first post here:

I had the same password issue but never wanted to o put a password on my log in. There is another solution if you are OK with using REGEDIT to edit the Windows registry. the instructions, depending on which version of Windows you are running is on the second and third pages of this thread and it worked fine.

Currently Being ModeratedNov 25, 2010 7:22 AM (in response to swandy)There is an even simpler solution.
Here http://elpamsoft.com/Downloads.aspx there are the same files as linked to above, but they have all been put into a simple exe file that takes all the installation pain away. No need to mess around with Firewalls or permissions.
Actually, I just noticed that this is also linked to in post #46 in the Macrumors thread above. iPhone 3GS 32Gb iOS 4.2.1, iPad 32Gb 3G iOS 4.2.1

Currently Being ModeratedNov 25, 2010 11:17 PM (in response to virtualgeo)Some of the Internet instructions will tell you to enable your Guest account to be able to use AirPrint...
NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER do ANYTHING through the Guest account!!! It should be disabled because if hacked into there are security issues with it and people gaining admin privileges on your system.
Instead, do as the instructions that I and others have posted...if you don't have any account on your machine, create one, but don't use Guest!!!Dell, Windows 7

I was running into the "lock" icon issue with printing from my iPhone/iPad and solved it from this site:
You don't have to enable the guest account, just create an exception in Windows firewall to allow the Airprint.exe process to allow inbound connections from your private network. Once I created this exception, stopped and restarted the service, I selected to print a web page and it prompted me for a login/password to my computer, I entered it and the page printed.
Hope this solves most of your issues!!

Currently Being ModeratedDec 9, 2010 5:29 PM (in response to Locutus of Apple)I still get the password prompt each time I want to print. Just a quick question:
Does anybody know or can you verify that an app like 1password would just store that password and fill it in each time to save a little time when printing?
