I have a netwrok running SBS 2003 R2. One of the computers on the network is running a software program that had conflicts with one of the printers shared on the network from the server. How can I prevent this network printer from being installed on this specific machine automatically at login. I have un-checked the "automatically check for network folders and printers" box, however when I log in to the machine it still re-installs the network printer.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You can try this registry change : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced\NoNetCrawling and make entry DWORD:NoNetCrawling=0×1
You can also try this, which basically does the same thing, open Windows Explorer on that computer, Tools | Folder Options | View and remove the check mark from Automatically search for network folders and printers
Let us know if this works for you
