if the previous script does not remove all the printers for all users, this should work.

I have used this in a batch file, add a seperate entry for each printer installed

Reg Delete "hkcu\Printers\connections\,,LAGSPRN01\LAGPIS100" /f
Reg Delete "hkcu\Printers\connections\,,LAGSPRN01\LAGPISxx" /f
Reg Delete "hkcu\Printers\connections\,,LAGSPRN01\LAGPISxxx" /f

The VBS. removed \\LAGSPRN01\LAGPIS100 only for one user
The BAT. didn't remove \\LAGSPRN01\LAGPIS100 from any user.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated?
