   Microsoft Office Update reinstalled - and set as default printer - the "Microsoft Office Document Image Writer" (MODI).  We are looking for a script so we can delete the printer automatically from a few thousand Windows 2000 workstations.  We use Novell Netware & Zenworks to manage our workstations.

    I found the script below for Windows XP but it fails under W2K.  

cscript %systemroot%\system32\prnmngr.vbs -d -p "Microsoft Office Document Image Writer"

Any help would be appreciated.

This should do it:
rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /dl /n "Microsoft Office Document Image Writer"


It could be run through a Startup script or with PsExec.
