    ? You want to remove the printer sharing option ,or you have some printer wizard starting up when you switch on one of the network pcs.

    No .. none of that.

    What happens is that Windows would automatically detect printers shared on the network and install itself. I like to turn off this feature.

    Folder Options -> View -> Uncheck "Automatically search for network folders and printers"
