pscout.exe - how to stop snmp traffic coming from workstation

We have made modifications to printers to stop broadcast snmp trafffic.  currently, this traffic is now being generated from pscout.exe on the workstations.  Is there a way to disable this traffic from the workstation without affecting the performance of the print driver or printer use?

I assume that by pscout.exe you mean Xerox' PrinterScout

In that case, why not disable it in the driver? It will not affect the performance of the driver, but you will stop getting annoying (to me, anyway) messages about printer problems. To disable it, go to printer Properties, click the Troublshooting tab and untick it.
