Question

Hi guys

I am a bit troubled with the Windows XP's auto printer scanning enhancement. Whenever a printer attached to a Windows XP computer is shared in the network, most of the other Windows XP users within the network can access the shared printer without additing it manually (because Windows XP scans(?) the entire network for a new shared printer) which ends up with 20-25 auto printers within the "Printers and Faxes" window where a normal user faces troubles to choose right printer!!!

Please tell me how I can turn off this "enhancement" from Microsoft.

Thanks in advance.
