    Printer seems to be cached!

    Morning Fellow Edugeekers!

    We have a strange problem here, we deleted an old printer a while ago. Now the past few days this printer is getting mapped all around the college as the default printer?

    Any ideas? Ive had a look in group policy to double check it is not getting a different script or policy to map it from there! checked the print server, 100% deleted.

    I think there are still printer references left in the user profiles. check this to start off.

    Definitely check in the profiles, we've had problems with this in the past. Also, how do you deploy your printers? We once did it via a script using the "rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ga /n\\server\printer" method which installs the printer to the machine and WON'T BUGGER OFF!!! Unless you run the same script with a /gd instead of /ga
