I have a user running Windows XP, on a Windows SBS 2003 environment. Every time I remove the printers manually from his workstation they reappear when he logs on to another workstation. If he returns back to he original computer the printers are back again. The printers at one point resided on the server, but no longer do so. I have made sure there are no traces of these printers on the server, including registry entries. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Check his user account in DSA.MSC and make sure that his login script is what it should be. Verify that his logon script matches the rest of the users, if not, either make it match by specifying the correct script in AD Users and Computers OR modify the script to not attempt to connect to printers and their drivers that do not exist.

I would suggest the later, because if he is on a special script, there is probably a reason why and you just do not have the full history as to WHY he is on a special script.

There are no scripts associated with this user or anyone else in his particular group.

Hi, does he have a roaming profile? If so that seems to be what is happening....every time he logs on they remap.
