I had the same issue with one of my users,
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows did not exist for these users. Restart the spooler after after recreating the key.
The String Value which controls your Default Printer is
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows] 
“Device”=”Microsoft Office Document Image Writer,winspool,Ne00:”
