Preventing EFI Job Monitor from Ever Installing

We have a Cannon 3220 printer that also uses the EFI print driver (V2.0, driver version 6.0.6000.etc.).  The printer is shared on a Windows 2003 print server.  When users add this printer driver to their profile they also get the EFI print monitor utility.  The utiliy then runs whenever they log on and throws an error about not being able to connect to ip address <addres of print server>.  Whai I would liek to do is prevent the EFI monitor from ever loading on to and enduser machine.  Does anyone know how this can be accomplished?  Is it possible to remove the EFI utility from the print server?

Unfortunately no.  Is buried in their driver.  The only way to remove the actual program is to remove the driver.  Believe me I worked on it for at least 4 weeks.  I used sysinternal tools to determine how and what was being called when the driver loads.  I hate that program as much as you do.

The only thing to do is to open the preferences and uncheck the box to load at windows start (on the client machine), if you need the driver.  Otherwise uninstalling the driver is the only way to get rid of the program.

Sorry, wish I had better news for you.
