two laptops when they logged onto network were asked to install drivers for printers that were already installed on their laptops.  What would cause that to happen?
They do go home and connect to our network sometimes remotely through VPN but don't get why this is happening.

You may have recently updated the MS operating system and the drivers needed to be updated/reinstalled. Keep a watch out for MS updates and if this occurs again.

I suspect you may be right.  But how weird that this would cause print drivers to need to be reinstalled.

My MS systems just updated yesterday and today, seems reasonable.

If the MS updates updated a software module that interfaces with the print driver I would suspect its very plausible.

Keep me posted, I am curious.
