Getting printer driver install popup in terminal server... rundll32 printui.dll help!

I set up a Windows 2003 Terminal Server for application use. I installed a bunch of printers on there globally, using the "rundll32 printui.dll,PrintUIEntry /ga /n\\PRINTERNAME" command.

First problem I have, is that there's a printer called "Printer on Machine" that is *always* unable to connect. I never added this printer, but it appears on the list for *every* user.

Secondly, and this happens to NON-ADMINISTRATORS on the box (which is almost every TS user), that they get a popup when logging in or some time soon thereafter, showing that Windows is trying to install a printer driver for "Printer". My assumption is that these two are intertwined.

When trying to get properties on the printer, I cannot because it says the spooler service isn't running. I can delete this printer for myself, but it reinstalls when I log back in. I don't know how to get rid of it *globally*.

I appreciate any help on how to get rid of this printer *globally*. I'm sure that the errors for the users will go away if I can do that much.

Thanks a bunch!
