Is there a way using KBox that I can delete printers from user machines? Using the KBox I installed a HP Universal Print Driver for a LaserJet 4700 and I want the users to use that printer instead of the original one they all have installed with the PCL6 driver.

Thanks!

Chris

The way that I can think of would be to script it out with powershell or VBS...

Otherwise you could do it with Group Policy as well.

I did a presentation on deploying printers at the user konference a while back; reversing the process by removing the listed registry entries and restarting the spooler service would accomplish the same thing.

Good information in the presentation but doesn't relate to network printers which I am trying to remove.

Thanks though

In looking around I did find the registry entry under HKEY_Current_User\Printers\Connections so I guess all I will need to do is a script to remove that entry.

Thanks
