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.

No the information I am looking for I don't want to change the default printer some of the users have desktop printers they need to have as default I am looking to totally remove a printer from their machines I already have a printer install working to replace the one I want to delete.

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
