I am not a script guru, I can get by for my purposes, but don't know scripts inside and out.  I posted an answer to the below question:
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Hardware/Peripherals/Printers_Scanners/Q_23003197.html?cid=238#a20418341

The poster is getting an error when running the script.  I don't know what is causing it, so am looking for someone who can review it the question and give the poster some more suggestions.

Thanks,

michko

I think that this can help you
ON ERROR RESUME NEXT
Set WSHNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set WSHPrinters = WSHNetwork.EnumPrinterConnections
For LOOP_COUNTER = 0 To WSHPrinters.Count - 1 step 2
 If Left(WSHPrinters.Item(LOOP_COUNTER +1),2) = "\\" Then
  WSHNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection WSHPrinters.Item
  (LOOP_COUNTER +1),True,True
 End If
next
wscript.quit

michko,

I've made an error in the script.
attempt 2:
ON ERROR RESUME NEXT
Set WSHNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set WSHPrinters = WSHNetwork.EnumPrinterConnections
For LOOP_COUNTER = 0 To WSHPrinters.Count - 1 step 2
 If Left(WSHPrinters.Item(LOOP_COUNTER +1),2) = "\\" Then
  WSHNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection 
  WSHPrinters.Item(LOOP_COUNTER +1),True,True
 End If
next
wscript.quit

Thanks.  Once solved for poster, I'll credit points here also.  Poster only put 50 pts for their question, so it won't violate the 500 max limit.  Appreciate the help.
