Unusual Default Printer behavior
We have an unusual problem on a handful of PCs:
We have a locally attached printer that is set as the Default Printer - when user logs in all is fine but for some reason during the day the Default printer will change to a Network Printer assigned by Group Policy, that is in the PC's list of available printers.
We are running Windows 7 and a Server 2008 R2 Print Server. We have Kyocera Printers.
The problem doesn't happen for all staff just a handful and at the moment no Group Policy assigned to that PC sets a Default printer.

Try to run the good old chap Resultant set of Policies and see exactly what GPOs are applied to these PCs Use the Resultant Set of Policy Snap-in, somewhere donw the line they must be getting this domain printer applied
Hope it helps!

GPP printer deployment allows you to specify the default printer. GPO printer deployment works based on the printer name alphabetically.
If you use GPO printer deployment, you can use a GPP regedit to set the default printer.

It sounds like group policy is 'updating' during the day.
Have you set the refresh time on group policies?
