    printer keeps re installing

    anyone come accross this before?

    The heads laptop sits on a usb port replicator to which her printer is attached.

    When she docs her laptop it detects her printer and installs a copy of itself so she now has half a dozen of the same printer installed on her laptop.

    Can't figure out how to stop this happening and i've got better things to do (like install the KS3 ICT testing software) than spend all day looking at her bleedy laptop.

    Any help will be much appreciated.

    Does it do the same thing if you have local admin rights?

    ah, not what I thought then.

    Script to delete all printers when it undocks / shuts down? It's a hack, but it'd get her off your back.

    Docking software is broken. Go hunt for an update? (Is it a Dell...?)
