Printer Issue - automatically switches default printer.

An association we work with has a odd issue:
If you have a printer selected as your default printer and when you are in another program and select to use a different printer just for that time, then it switches your printer to the printer you only wanted to use that once.
I know this sounds like a riddle or something crazy, well it is! All I want to do is have a specific printer selected as default and STAY that way! please read example for better understanding:
Example: Lexmark Printer is selected as this persons default printer in windows. When they going into a program and select to use the HP LaserJet, it successufully prints the laser roster, however, in windows it's now switched the HP LaserJet printer to default.
This issue only occurs when they try to print the specific laser roster. Is they a way to LOCK a specific printer as default.
This is a annoyance for the fact they keep the black & white printer(faster) as default for majority of office work. The roster's are only run once a week or so.
Thanks in advance,
