Right-click the printer you want to use and select 'set as default printer'.  When you tell a program to print, this is the one that will be used.  Is there some problem with having plenty of choices in case the default printer is broken/out of ink/busy?  Just right-click any unwanted printers and select 'delete'.

make sure that the pc's using the printer (over the network, asin not directly connected to the thing) arent offering it as a shared service them selves :). or if your question confused me and you meant that there is no network and y are they there, then dont worry about it, just remove em, its recommended you use the printer setup.exe on your insallation disk to install a printer (makes it a lil easier and usually sets it to default), or do you want to find the printer in a network? you will have to be a bit more specific for any detailed help im afraid, other wise people wont bother wasting their time with random 'shots in the dark' so to speak. :)
