Do the printers show up in Microsoft Excel?
 
***from CTX668903
When viewing printers in Excel 97/2000/2002, users can see all other users'
autocreated client printers. The printer enumeration mechanism used by Excel
causes the issue. See Q313683
<http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q313/6/83.asp>  and
Q297883 <http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q297/8/83.asp>
for additional information. Other applications that use this sort of printer
enumeration mechanism may experience the same scenario. Please review the
workings of the API calls AddPrinters(), EnumPrinters(), OpenPrinter(), and
GetProfileStrings() when determining how the application enumerates its
printers. 

Issues of this nature are reproducible within an RDP session. Open Notepad
and the application in question. Enumerate the printers and note the result

            No, I checked. The Anonymous users only belong to the Anonymous
group,
            which belongs to no other group.

It's not normal.  Check each of your Anonxxx users to see if some of them
might have Administrator rights.

        Is it normal for people logged in Anonymouslt to be able to 
        see the printers of otehr Anonymous users? I have an NT 
        4.0 TSE with Citrix 1.8 and this is happening. But, they 
        can't see all of them, just some of them. Seems to be 
        random. Any known fixes?
