Posted: 11 Sep 03

'WshShell.RegDelete will fail if the value contains '\\'
'dont not run this script as it will delete all your printers

Const HKCU = &H80000001
strKeyPath = "Printers\Settings"

Set refRegObject = GetObject("Winmgmts:root\default:StdRegProv")

If refRegObject.EnumValues(HKCU, strKeyPath, arrValueNames, arrValueTypes) = 0 Then
   For i = 0 to UBound(arrValueNames)
      msgbox arrValueNames(i)
         refRegObject.DeleteValue HKCU, strKeyPath, CStr(arrValueNames(i))
End If

Set refRegObject = Nothing
