Script to delete, add network printer

I'm having a heck of a time getting a proper script to delete/remove then add a printer to a Windows 7 Starter client.

We have a network printer located at: \\blue\C351_PCL that's shared through a Win2k3 server.  It will require credentials... We'll say user: printer  password: printer.

Can someone help/provide me a script that will remove this existing printer then reinstall it?  I can't seem to get the PC to remember credentials... so every morning I have to manually do this.  I would put the machine on the domain but it's Win7 starter...

Add: @Rundll32.exe printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /in /q /n"\\blue\C451_PCL

Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\server\Xerox WorkCentre Pro C3545"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\server\Xerox WorkCentre Pro C3545 - Color"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\server\Xerox WorkCentre 7435"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\server\Xerox WorkCentre 7435 - Color"
WshNetwork.AddWindowsPrinterConnection "\\server\Phaser 5550N PS"

WshNetwork.SetDefaultPrinter "\\server\Phaser 5550N PS"

I didn't mean to close this so soon!

I still have the problem of needing credentials supplied when connecting to the printer.

I guess I will re-post a similar question if all else fails.
