Duplicate printer names

    Hi group,

    I've noticed in my Printers Folder (XP) that I have some additional
    printers, which appear to duplicate what's already connected.

    For example, I have an Epson CX3200 and a Brother MFC5840CN both connected
    on the network, but in addition to these, there are two more printers shown
    as "Auto Epson CX3200" and "Auto Brother MFC5840CN".

    Does anyone know why this is, and is it safe to delete those "Auto"
    printers?

    Many thanks.

    Tanel.
