Please try this:

Open up the command prompt in Windows 7 (do a run as administrator).

Type the following:

NET USE [LPTx:] \\ComputerName\printer_share /PERSISTENT:YES

If that doesnt help you could probably write up a batch file so it runs on restart. To do this open up a Text document and type the above command in the text file. Once done, save it, and rename it to whatever you'd like with the last 3 characters as bat

for example : Printer.bat

Once done place the batch file in your startup directory.

Let us know if this works.
