We are having a problem when a user signs on to a new workstation using XP. Their default printer is set to the Microsoft Office Document Image Writer. We have tried our best to train them to set their default to the proper printer, but that seems to be beyond their abilities. When they don't and attempt to print something, nothing happens and they end up attempting to print the document multiple times to no avail. The only time they call us to fix it is when the pc has slowed down to less than a crawl. My question, what, if anything, will happen if we simply delete the Microsoft Office Document Image Writer?

Nothing. :)

I have found the easiest solution is to simply delete all of the printers except for the printer you want to print to. This can cause problems if you have multiple printers you wish to print to, but simply deleting the Microsoft Office Document Image Writer will not have any negative effects.

Good luck!
