Access is denied, unable to remove device when trying to delete a printer.

Okay.  This is a pretty good one.  I have a user that I have made an admin on his machine.  He is running a 64 bit version of Windows 7.  I have a program that runs a batch file that does tons of things upon login, so it is possible that a registy key was set to deny printer removal, but I set something up to allow printer removal (I thought).  When I right-click on any printer I wish to remove, I get a message that says "Access is denied, unable to remove device".  What can I do in this case?  I hvae several printers that say (redirected 2) after them, so if course they are undesirable.  Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you very much.

This has been resolved.  Apparently this has something to do with being RDP'd in to this machine.  I log in locally as the same user and the printers do now show up.
