    I made a change at some point and I'm not exactly sure what I did but now whenever I send something to my printer the entire system pretty much comes to a crawl until its just about done printing..

    anyone have some pointers for me as to what I did and what I can do to fix it?

    Got the latest drivers?
    Also, is the printer spooling the printjob? Or is it printing straight from file?

    Its an old printer (HP 540) so I just used the drivers on the windows XP cd. I have it set to spool and start when the last page is spooled. I have the print processor set to RAW. I've given it both a low priority and a high priority which didnt seem to affect they system either way..

    Did I miss anything?

    I am using ICS and I do share this printer over my LAN.
