Event log errors TermServDevices

I get multiple errors in the event log complaining about printers that are not installed on the computer.

"Driver Canon MP210 series Printer required for printer Canon MP210 series Printer is unknown. Contact the administrator to install the driver before you log in again."

Errors for several other printers as well. No printers are installed under "Printers and Faxes", and no applications are being run on this computer (it is essentially shared folder server for backups).

What could be requesting printers that don't exist?
Watch Question

These should be printers on the client PCs that are looking to connect to the terminal server. This is normal.
If the client has a printer wether it be USB, Network, LPT the termserver will try to create a printer for the user under the sesssion.
Sorry for the mulitple posts...here is a KB on the issue and resolution

Thanks, I get it now.
