Ok, I attempted that, and it was unsuccessful due to the fact that I couldn't reach that location.
HOWEVER, I found out what it was.
There was a corrupted registry entry for print provider. I deleted it, opened printers and faxes, and all the printers magically populated themselves into the folder. It was quite a sight to see.
I found it in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\PRINT\
That's where the providers folder is located, there are two by default: LanMan Print Services and Internet Print Provider.
I sincerely hope this helps whoever else has this same issue.....
