    Hi there,

    How do we disable Windows XP from detecting and installing by itself the printers located on the network please?

    Thanks ..

    Not quite sure this will do it, but it's worth a shot:

    Open Explorer, click Tools>Folder Options
    In the "View" tab, look for the "Automatically Search for Network Folders and Printers" and uncheck it.

    Hope that helps. :)
