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?

Remote Desktop Services provides printer redirection, which routes printing jobs from a remote computer(connected thru RDC) to a printer that is attached to a client computer or to a shared printer that is available to the client computer if the same printer drivers are available on remote computer.


When you uncheck printer from local resources(in RDC options) printers will not be appear n the remote computer
