Unable to remove Printer Windows 7
Posted on 2012-04-12
I want to give computers / users the appropriate group policy to allow them to add / remove printers, without having the administrator log on and do it. What I'm currently working on, is the image of windows 7 we have, includes 3 printers, called Fax, Microsoft XPS Document Writer, and Send to OneNote 2010 - which we all want deleted.
Ideally I'd like to be able to do this as the user account, however when I go to delete it, it throws back the error: Access is denied, unable to remove device.
In my GPO of the User Configuration, I already changed these policies thinking it would do it, but it's not it:
Prevent addition of printers - DISABLED
Prevent deletion of printers - DISABLED
If this is not possible, I'm also open to getting a vbs script to remove the printers in question, something like if these printers are found, to delete them upon logon.
