XP Printer settings changing/reverting back on their own

By Ron-Tech ·
I have several clients running Win XP SP3 that print to a couple Network (IP Port) Fiery printers.

In the Advance tab of the printer settings on the desktop I set to "Print directly to the printer". These jobs are large (100-300+MB) print jobs and will error out if spooled...

Although I save the print settings with all programs closed, for some reason the print settings keep reverting back to "Spool print document so program finishes printing faster" and "Start printing immediately" which seems to be the default printing settings.

What am I missing that keeps randomly reverting the printer settings back to the Windows default spool settings?

So, which program is despatching the print job then ?

Won't it have priority over the desktop ?

in AD - restrict access to Print only

if the other suggestion doesnt work then try this.

If you are using Windows Active Directory then in AD change the printer permission for users to print only. You can give trusted/required users to "Manager Printer".

In above case, they/application won't be able to change it.

Good Luck !
