Remote Desktop Session Host Config Reverting To Defaults

We are having an issue with our Remote Apps on our 2008 R2 servers where the client settings under RDP-TCP properties change themselves back to default. The main one being Redirection\Windows Printers we want to enable this therefore uncheck the box, however within 2 hours of us unchecking it ticks itself again.

I have been going over the local GP and the domain GPs and the only setting I can find that would effect this is:
Comp Conf - Admin Temp - Windows Components - Remote Desktop Session Hosts - Printer Redirection - Do not allow client printer redirection
However this is not configured anywhere.

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated as once the checkbox checks itself again any new connections doesn't map the local printers.

Cheers

enable the option you mentioned above, force gpo update, then disable it, again force GPO update.

Thanks Mate,
Didn't really want to use that policy, I was hoping there was an easier way to find out what is causing it. If I set that policy locally to disable it greys out Windows Printer option and a GPupdate doesn't over rule it which possibly rules out GPO.

Don't want to rely on that local policy though if possible
