Look for updated printer drivers.
Read the Printers.txt file in the Windows directory.

Delete the printer and every instance of it from within the registry.
Then reinstall it.

I firend of mine had a similar case of this but with a HP Laserjet 4MV printer.
IF that does not work, I ask, have you updated anything like TCP/IP but not winsock or something like that.
