IIS Intranet Website Printer Installation (client side)

When someone installs a printer through our Intranet website, it installs as default.  How can I change that?

Its the driver's installation software that is causing it to be set as the default and the phenomenon is model specific.  Canon and Sharp printers seem to love to do it.
You really have two choices; find an installer that doesn't set the printer as the default or use a script to get the default printer, install the new one, and then set the original default back.
