I use the below vb-script. Assuming you have your computers in OU:s depending
on location, you can easily tweak the script and link them to each OU. That
way, whenever you move a computer it'll get the proper printer based on the
location.

---
Set WshNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")

---

The remove printer queue is

---
WshNetwork.RemovePrinterConnection "\\computername\CanoniR5055N"
---

Pls note that there are no fancy error checks whatsoever, it's just a crude
quick'n'dirty script I got from somebody on this list.
