Multiple Adobe PDF printers

I installed Acrobat Standard 9 to an admin installatin point on my network and successfully deployed the product to my 30 users via Group Policy (with MST).

I then updated the installation point to 9.1 and redeployed the applicatino via Group Policy.

The product updates on the client workstation however a new Adobe PDF is listed in Printers and Faxes.

For each time I do this (Patch Admin Install Point and redeploy) a new Adobe PDF printer shows in printers and faxes.

After installing base and two patches (9.0, 9.1, 9.2) my printers and faxes resembles the following.

Adobe PDF
Adobe PDF (1)
Adobe PDF (2)

How can I fix this so the security / quarterly updates do not install another Adobe PDF (if one already exists).

Any suggestions are appreciated.

As far as I know, installation via GPO first uninstalls the product and then performs installation of new AIP.
Can you check whether any Adobe PDF printer remains after uninstallation from GPO.
