This term we have started using one of our servers via remote desktop connection. When we have been connecting via remote desktop it is adding the local computer printers to the server. When logging off it does not seem to remove them, and so when we log in again it adds another copy yet again as "(Copy 2)", "(Copy 3)" and so on...
When I attempt to manually delete these printers, I get denied with the error message...
"Printer cannot be removed. Either printer name was typed incorrectly, or the specified printer has lost its connection to the server."
The same goes for trying to access the printer queue or properties!
How can I delete these printer options without a connection?

I'm guessing, but restarting the print spooler (or failing that, terminal services) should do it.
There's an option you can set (in .rdp file if need be) to not connect the local printers.
