I am just trying to get a script to delete print$

This has come up as a security vulnerability for us and I want to put a script into a GPO to delete it each time a user logs on. Unless someone has a better way to do this.

The following should do what you want.  You can save it as a .ps1 file.
Get-WmiObject Win32_Share -filter "Name = 'print$'" | Remove-WmiObject

Open in new window
