Hoi Cameron, I had a similar issue with an HP Officejet printer ones. This thing could print, fax and copy. The network driver turned out to be a bitch. Our print server actually stopped wording because of the driver....We had a hard time in uninstalling the driver, since the printer folder would hang.....We solved it by unplugging the printer.....it's now used as a standalone fax.

She may not have the necessary access when she logs on. I would re-install the printer when logged on as her and see how that goes.

Before I deployed it I installed a network based printer and all seemed fine. Now that it is on the clients desk, she is unable to print and I cannot open the printers folder (it hangs the system). I have tried going in through the control panel etc but the computer still freezes up. The only other clue I have is the spoolsv.exe in Task Manager is showing a large amount of memory consumption (20+ MB). Can anyone shed any clues as to how I can fix this? Other than thins problem the computer seems fine.
