/D - Specify delete.
/C - Specify command line output.

/S=SERVERNAME - Show or delete all printers and server connections via
specified server on a workstation.
Example: If you had 20 printers connected to a workstation via a
single print server and you renamed the print server or removed
it from the network, this will delete or show all instances and all
printers that were connected via that print server.
/P=PRINTERNAME - Show or delete all instances of a specific printer
mounted via all servers on a workstation.
Example 1: If there were 2 print servers on your network and you
removed a printer that was mounted on both, this will delete all
of the instances of this specific printer by name.
Example 2: If you had a workstation with the following printers
and you renamed HP-Laser or removed HP-Laser from the network,
if you use the /D switch it will removed both of these connected
printers, but leave all other printers mounted to these servers
connected to that workstation.
/A - Administrative removal of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE entry for removing
print servers. (Must use /D and /S switches also)
This will check first to see if the user has local admin priveleges.
If they do it will remove the following key from the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Print\Providers\LanMan Print Services\Servers\PSERV
