Removing printers deployed by group policy
I am having a problem removing printers that are deployed to computers by group policy. When we remove them by either:
A: Remove the printer in the print management console, like in this image
B: when the computer is removed from the OU the policy is applied.
The printer remains installed and the only away to remove them is by deleting Reg Keys in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurentControlSet\Control \Print\Connections\
Does anyone know a way that they will automatically disappear when one of the above happens? I was thinking a startup script to empty the above area of the registry on every startup and then the printers will be then reinstalled on every startup. This solution is not ideal i would like something better.
I am running Pushprinterconnections.exe on startup.
This happens on our main network, my test environment and a community centre i look after.
Does anyone have any input please?

GPP Printing - Students with Roaming Profiles

Deployed Printers also carries mapping over in user profile, but printers are mapped reliably, currently trying to find script to delete deployed printers on logoff. Scenerio is that printers need to be mapped on an AD container basis, for students with roaming profiles. Is that the same as for yourself? Can you help? Thank you.
