If you want to select your default printer, you can just do a right clik on your printer to define it as default and if you want windows do not autodetect other printer, go to the explorer, clik tools menu, go to option folder (4), go to folder visualisation and uncheck automatic look for new printer!!!

If your using XP pro, you can set user rights to the printer in the printer properties/security tab.

No printers will be added, so that is not the issue. Also, none of the printers has a security tab under properties.
