comment Configuring Samba to allow Use of CUPS printer
You can require authentication in cupsd.conf, by setting AuthType Basic and Require user, in the appropriate sections you want to be authenticated. I haven't needed authenticated printing on windows though, so I haven't tried it out yet.

comment Samba and User Acount Passwords
Are you restarting the samba services after making changes to the config file? Do you have valid users = Family in smb.conf under the share section? If your still having trouble it might be best to start another question with more detail: smbd error messages that pop up in /var/log/auth.log, and how you set up samba possibly with the dump of your config file as well testparm /etc/samba/smb.conf....(which also tests smb.conf syntax).
