    Script to delete printer

    We have just deployed WSUS and all is working ok. We have noticed that
    when applying Office 2033 updates it install the Image Writer printer
    in the printers folder. When we create our images with RIS we remove
    this to stop confusion. Is tIs it possible to have a script run on
    logon that looks for this printer and if there deletes it?

    Any ideas or is there another way to stop this printer showing up.

    The reason its a problem for us is that it normally sets itself as the
    default printer and thhe kids just press print and without looking and
    moan when nothing comes out, so a knock on effect is that staff come
    complainiogn to us, when most of them do the same thing.

    We map 2 printers to each room already with a VB script, printers are
    normally named after the room ie; \\rm21brother1. Any suggestions or
    advice appreciated.
    I found the above on a ICT newsgroup. Does anyone know how to do this. I am in a similar positon to the problem described in the quote. I tried a .vbs script for deleting the printer (but i think i only tried it on the user configuration not computer configuration in GPO) The script can up with a error to do with security permissons.

    Should the script work in i try it in Computer settings or do i need to do somthing different to remove a GA (globally added ) printer

    There were a couple of replies on the newsgroup but i thought i could try Edugeek brains as well. (maybe someone here replied to the original poston the newsgroup?
