Printers keep reappearing after uninstalling.  Originally installed with group policy.

At one point, we had a policy that would add the printers to computer.  The policy has since been remove and the original printer server is also gone.  I have two systems, that I am aware of that are still showing the printers.  If I manually uninstall them and restart the computer, they reappear.  This is causing slowness because the system is trying to connect to a server and printer that no longer exist.  How do I resolve this?

We have a Windows Server 2008 DC, previously was 2003.  The clients in questions are XP.

Run a RSoP on the machines on which the printer is showing up.  See what GPO is adding it to the machine.  There is probably a ghost in there somewhere....
