this is terminal server and this errors are not from my administrator account. they are from terminal server users so do you think still good idea to search from HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers?

you can search under,,,
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows

but you just need to find the printer name, hence search entire registry if not found under above key.
