Photoshop: CS5 Forgets Printer Setting Between Every Photo

I am having the same problem I heard about in the Photoshop forum where Photoshop CS5 does not remember my printer settings. I thought it was because my printer was connected to a print server because the print server does not allow bidirectional support. So, I eliminated the print server. Photoshop still does not remember my printer setting. So, I created an action to set up the printer settings. The action sets the correct printer and settings, however, if I don't change the printer to the wrong printer and then back again before clicking the Print button, I get the message that "The image is larger than the paper's printable area; some clipping will occur." My only option is to tell Photoshop to use a different printer, then change it back to the printer I really want to use. When I do that, however, Photoshop changes the Printer Profile to "Canon IJ Color Printer Profile 2005" and then I have to change it back to "Adobe RGB (1998)". All of this happens for every photo I print. This problem just started happening about a month or two ago, and I strongly suspect it is a result of an Adobe software update because I never had the problem previously (either while using a print server or USB port directly from my PC). I am using Photoshop CS5 12.0.4 x64 version with Windows 7 x64 and Printing to a Canon Pro9500 Mark II. This is really getting old. I wonder if Adobe is hearing this complaint from other users as well and if they are working on a solution.
