First of all Look at the page setup in your printer options , maybe its someone who messed around with it

Secondly  and Hopefully not a virus ...

Is the computer clean and not infected of malware ?

Did you recently install or update anything ?

Can you click print and take a snapshot of all Running processes ?

I want a "Destroy this COPY by 6/19/2015" footer on each page per our regulations, but don't know how to do.

Do you have any ideas ?
As far as I'm aware, there is no off-the-shelf method of achieving the result you want.

Such information could only be inserted by one of:

Adding some sort of feature in each relevant application - perhaps via use of macros?
Adding some sort of feature in  each relevant printer driver.
Intercepting the driver-generated print job and adding in the data - this would require being able to dynamically parse and modify the Page Description Language specific print stream - exceedingly difficult.

... and (even if you could add such a feature, you'd have to make sure that individual users couldn't over-ride it by modifying document or printer preferences.

The only 'feature' which comes anywhere near the above is the Watermark feature offered by some (but not all) printer drivers.
This does not generate a footer - the watermark is usually drawn across the whole page, in a light-grey.
This has to be set separately for each printer.
It is (as far as I know) limited to a few fixed texts, so not the variable text you want.
Even if you could find a way to add in your own text (perhaps by modifying .gpd files, or similar?), you'd have to modify the (Preferences) setting, for each printer, every day (perhaps via some sort of script) to change the 'by date' part.

i taught you wanted to remove it ...

Anyway , you can do that with A vb script in Microsoft Word/ Excell files ,The only case you need extra software is for pdfs and in PDF's its via Using Ghostscript and PDF ToolKit , Or you can just save the documents Via Microsoft Word as a PDF after they have the Footer...

It won't be set up automaticly but you will have to run the script after you finish writing the document

Assuming you are using those , i dont know what you are currently using... ?!
