Win 7 - Hyper-V - Virtual Machines - Cant Remove Printer (re-directed) - Access denied

Problem - Cant remove a Windows 7 printer (redirected) from printer and devices windows.
I have several Win7 Clients running as virtual machines, on a 2008 hyper-v server. The original printer the win clients use was replaced with an Cannon all in one MX7600. The install went well.
Now when I connect to the virtual machine from a desktop there are 2 printer icons. One says MX7600 Printer the other says MX7600 Printer (Redirected). Both of these print icons work. I tried to remove the one that says (re-directed) but it wont let me. The security information shows the owner of this icon as unknown with GUID. When I connect to the the Hyper-v virtual machine console and launch the same windows 7 client I do not get the redirected icon.
Is there a way to get rid of the redirected icon? Does it serve a purpose?
