Awesome, Thanks! Confirmed working again after installing KB3192403 on a 
clean Win 7 install.

Note that you need to add (an additional/new) GPO setting :

Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Printers 
 > "Package Point and print - Approved servers"
-> Set to enabled and add all print servers w. FQDN

Then set again same print servers w. FQDN in "Point and Print 
Restrictions" GPO (this one you should already have).
