Windows Server 2008 - Remote Desktop Services - User Profile Corruption

One of the servers on our network is a Windows Server 2008 VM that is running RDS services.

Lately, we've had some issues with user profiles on the RDS server becoming corrupted. The biggest issue is that the default printer is not set to the correct printer. We checked group policy throughly.  We find no reason why random printers are getting assigned to the default printer on the RDS server.

To resolve, we simply renamed the user profile folder and it fixed the issue. The problem is starting to spread, though. We now have 4 users that are not being assigned the correct default printer.

Any idea why the user profiles keep getting corrupted? This is a Server 2008R2 VM running on an ESX host. We are using Vipre Business anti-virus. Within the last year we migrated from SBS 2003 to Server Standard 2008 network.  Any ideas?

We confirmed that none of the printers are being redirected from local. Also thoroughly checked AD and Group Policy. The only fix we have is to rename the user profile folder on the RDS server to force creation of a new profile and then the correct default printer gets assigned by group policy.
