XP Pro Client default printer problem in SBS environment

I have 20PC SBS environment, with XP Pro on the desktops.
Mixture of users throughout the building - some share their printer, and some are in a  room by themselves, with their own seperate printer. The printer sharing is all been done by the XP client machines.

When some users log in in the morning, the default printer sometimes changes from the local printer connected to their PC, to one of the shared printers throughout the network. Very frustrating for the users concerned as it is not apparent until they go to print.
There is a script running, to connect clients to the SBS when they log in, but I did not include anything re printers within it, due to the fact the clients are running their own printers.
Is there a way of resolving this?

In your Server Management Console click Client Computers and then click View Computer Settings in the right pane.

Expand the tree for the computer you want to allow to keep the local printer as it's default.
Expand Client setup configuration options
Right Click Configure Printers > Change

Close all that out and then the server will not reset the printer anymore.
