Are you logging into a server through RDP?

You can change this behaviour in the RDP client by clicking options, Local Resources tab and unticking printers under Local devices. You can also prevent this in group policy on the machine here:
Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Terminal Services -> Client / Server Data Redirection : “Do not allow client printer redirection”
