try to find the value "ACDE7180-2658-4EE5-996F-16105051B20E" in registry then you can see the details about printer.

it will not take more than 10 mins.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Printers

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.
