Default Printer Reset

Why is it that my default printer is always resetting itself?? I have a good
printer (to print photos, etc) and a not so good printer (to print docs and
drafts), and windows always defaults to the one I want as secondary (the not
so good). How the heck do I keep windows from changing my settings??

This can be actually in the printer drivers themselves.... I've seen HP
printers (in particular) that INSIST on beng the default. Certainly if one
printer becomes unavailable for whatever reason, XP feels insecure and will
default to the one 'next in line'... which of course may not be your idea of
the next in line.
