Redirect only the default client printer - Windows 2008 R2 Terminal Services

When logging into a terminal server as non-admin user all my users see all the printers for every session.

I have one terminal server in its own OU.  I have a Terminal Server GPO setup set to Redirect only the default client printer under the computer settings and user settings.  I have that GPO linked to the OU the terminal server is in as well I have it linked to an OU for my users as well.  The GPO is set to filter and only apply to user in a security group.  I have run gpupdate /force.  I have also tried gpupdate /H as a user but I don't get any output for the computer settings I think because the user does not have rights.

How can I get this to map only the client's default printer?

Check the local admin permissions on that server.  Do standard users have local admin rights on that server?

No they do not.

So then run it as a startup script instread of GPO?  Or is there some way to run a GPO as a startup script.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

A startup script runs as the SYSTEM account and can make changes to the HKLM, HKCR,  and DEFAULT registry hives.  A standard user account can't.

How is it working now then, the printers are seen in the user's sessions.
