    Printer follows user around building

    Hi,

    We have a few printers that appear to follow staff around the school wherever they log on. For staff, we use roaming profiles and have found that removing the profile, resolves the issue. The deployment of printers is done through GPO and we have checked that the deployment is via per computer and not per user.

    Has anybody got any ideas how to prevent this happening and how to remove it from people that have already got the printer, without wiping all the profiles?

    When you say deployed by GPO, do you mean by GPO or be GPP?

    It appears as if the printer has been installed via the users profile.

    To remove the printer out of the users profile automatically, you'll have to run a script.
