Default Printer keeps changing

I had a secretary whose default printer selection would not hold...I followed these directions to change and it appears to be holding now:

I have found a way that has fixed this issue for everyone who is experiencing it at my company.

I had to go and edit the users registry hive:

HKEY_USERS\USERS_SID_HERE\Printers\Connections

I inevitably found old printer connections there that were no longer valid.  Upon clearing those out, after a reboot, the problem went away.

I also cleared out the HKEY_USERS\USERS_SID_HERE\Printers\Settings key - the users had old printer setting sin there also.

 I found this article helpful. (0)
