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?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
