Hi Billy,

Thank you for the links and extra information. I do wonder if Microsoft have a QA dept anymore after reading all the other people that have this problem.

I installed the extra 22H2 ADMX files from the Microsoft site and spent a couple of hours trying to get them to work properly, and failed.
In the end I got another machine and applied the 22H2 update to it and installed GPMC and there were the magic RPC options!

I ran 'gpupdate /force' and rebooted twice and HALLELUJAH the printers are back!

I will wait until the GPO's have deployed to more laptops around site and see if the rpcd_winreg CPU usage goes down too.

Many thanks for pointing me in the right direction,
