terminal services old printers showing up

I have two terminal servers and one file/print/domain controler server. I have set up a new server which I have moved the print services over to. All local workstations and the terminal server users can access the new printers on the new print server.

My problem is that all of the old printers which point to the old location are still showing up in the list of available printers for each user and I am not quite sure how to get rid of them. When I look at one of the terminal servers, I see that they are all listed at the following location;
HKLM/software/Microsoft/windows nt/currentversion/print/providers/lanman print services/servers

I use Kixcripts so all users log in and are mapped the new printers. I have another script that I created to delete all of the old printer mappings from the old server. I've run that kixscript on both terminal servers

I have only two terminal servers but is there a way to remove them so that my 20 plus TS users don't see the old printer printer mappings?

Do I delete them from registry? Why do they still show up even though they don't exist anymore?

I have run into this issue in Citrix before and resolved it by copying the Default User profile (C:\Documents and Settings\Default User) from a working server to the affected server.  Worth a shot if you have already deleted the printers from that server and they still show up.
