Cannot remove Printer !!!!
We have recently changed print servers, from server 2003 to a server 2008 print server.
In our Vista ICT Suite, whenever a student logs in they can see the old printers that no longer exist (the server is also decomissioned)
If admin logs in, local has no printers and domain admin has the correct deployed printer.
When a staff member logs in they see the old printer "XXXX\Samsung CLP510 - Colour"
I have tried the following to get rid of this printer:
removed user profiles (also removed SID from profile list in registry)
removed all instances of the any printer from the registry under:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers\Version-2\Printer Name
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Print\Printers\Printer Name
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Print\Providers\LanMan Print Services\Servers\server name\Printers\Printer Name
Ive deleted all drivers from "C:\Windows\System32\spool\PRINTERS\"
BUT STILL !! when i log in as teacher/students, i get this really old network printer that no longer exists:
"XXXX\Samsung CLP510 - Mono"
Anyone please know of a way i can kill it?

are you using profiles?? as profiles have a habit of storing printers..

Do the users without a printer have profiles created on another machine? Perhaps the printer is present in the default user profile on the affected machines.

If you download the Server 2003 Resource Kit there's a utility called cleanspl.exe (Clean Spooler). It's great for getting rid old printers. You can also run commands remotely.
