High processor usage from the spooler occurs when a user logs off from

When a user logs off from a session on a terminal server (a server
that has Terminal Server enabled) that is running either Microsoft
Windows 2000 or Microsoft Windows Server 2003, the Spoolsv.exe file
consumes a large percentage of processor time for a short time.
This problem occurs when a user gains access to the Windows terminal
server by using a Citrix Metaframe client and has redirected client
printers. When the user logs off the terminal server, the spooler
service is notified that redirected printers have to be purged. The
spooler service then notifies every session's Winlogon service that a
printer has to be cleared. Every Winlogon service then queries the
Spooler service for an update, and this causes high processor usage
from the spooler service.
