Hi All,

I have a laptop with Windows 2000 installed on it.  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.

Thanks in advance,
