MS Word 2003 freezes when printing

I have a user and when she tries to print a .doc file from a specific folder on the network to her desktop printer it will print a few files fine from that folder but on 3rd of 4th it will just shoot up to 100% CPU usage and word will free and everything else will work slowly (obviously).

I have updated printer drivers, checked the spooling service, there is no viruses on the PC and it only happens to files in one specific network share and it's driving me nuts! I am this close to giving up and giving her a fresh PC...
Anybody know what could cause this?

Where is the network share in relation to the print server?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
