Default Printer will not stay after logging off

I have a user that logs into a windows 2008 R2 terminal server. When they change their default printer and then relog, it reverts back to a Zebra label printer. I have recreated the profile on the terminal server and still no luck. The profile is updating daily but the printer settings are not staying. This is also the only user experiencing this issue.

Does this one use gave a RDP-redirected printer? This might override the default printer.

They do not have a RDP redirected printer. Could this have to do with their roaming profile? Settings not being saved to the roaming profile.

It looks like I cant set shared printers as the default printer. I can set locally added printers all I want to. Also i recreated the roaming profile with no luck.
