We have Windows 7 environnment and always when user print a page he got a flag that "this file has sent to the printer" (I translated this by myself, so in english version it might be a bit different).

How we could disable this flag? And is there some policy or some other way that I can do it easily for all of the clients?

   * Show informational notifications for local printers. This option notifies users when a job is printed on a printer that is attached to this computer.
    * Show informational notifications for network printers. This option notifies users of this computer when a job is printed on a remote computer.

Thanks. This solved the problem. Can I deploy this set for all users / computers via group policy or some other way?

I made this little policy template. Maybe you could give it a try. It is un-managed, which means that when you apply this policy to a target machine and later remove the policy, it will still be present on the target machine. Make sure you create a policy with this value Disabled, apply it to the OU's that the Enabled-policy is applied to and the Disabled-policy has a higher priority.

Open the zip-file and rename the .admx.txt to .admx, and the adml.txt to .adml.
