    Another option is to run prndrvr.vbs -x (in the folder Printing_Admin_Scripts in the system32 folder) to remove unused drivers after removing printers, or to run prnmngr.vbs -x to remove all printers if you’re staying at the command line (also in the Printing_Admin_Scripts folder).

    prndrvr.vbs is available only in Windows Vista and Windows 7 or?

  3. cluberti says:

    Win7 only.

    type “print management” and the screen flashes something too quick to see and reverts to desktop. followed help guide to accessing print management under system and security, administrative tools.. but there is no Print management listed there..

    win7 64bit home premium version.. anyone know HOW to get to this “print management” thing?

    I’m using Win 7 64 bit Home Premium.

    1. Start->Devices and Printers
    2. Highlight any of the printer icon under “Printers and Faxes” heading
    3. You’ll see some additional top menu bar items appear.
    4. Access Printer Server Properties->Drivers

    And you’ll be able to remove whatever driver listed on screen

    right click on print manager when it comes up and choose “run as administrator”. I was getting the “quick flash” and gone before I did the run as admin.
    Comes up correctly now.
