I have an issue changing the default printer on some computers, after loging in it always goes back to before. Environment: Win2003 Server, WinXP Pro, server-based print queues. Previously, logon scripts had been setup per department in group policy to make printer mappings, and to also force the default printer based on department (OU).

Over 2 weeks ago I removed these logon scripts and the associated policies, but I still have some machines that keep going back to the old default printer. How do I get rid of this?

Thanks in advance
