I have students in an ISS room (In School Suspension) that are printing to various printers on the network and they shouldn't be printing at all. Is there a way to disable printing for just those computers? Like a GPO setting? They are all already in the same OU. My servers are Windows Server 2008, the computers are Win7.

To enable Web-based printing for every client on the print server, except Clients in the ISS room.
Open Group Policy. Expand the following: Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, Printers.
Select Disable Web-based Printing to disable the policy for everyone on the print server. Then, add the policy as a snap-in for Clients in the ISS room as the Group Policy object.
Clear Disable Web-based Printing to enable the policy.
