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. :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
