Whenever i use an office 2k program like outlook or word i get a program error a few secs after starting the app.  "winword.exe" or "outlook.exe has generated program errors and will be closed by windows."  This also happens with wordpad.  Any suggestions?

in dr watson the error is listed as a c0000005 (access violation) DrvPrinterEvent.  I share the printer on another computer and it seems that i get these errors when the computer is off.  is there any way to avoid this?

I would install the latest service pack and patches for win2k and then to Office 2k.
SP2 is newest for win2k.

I hope this helps !

Sorry.  I totally forgot about this question.  It turned out that the computer with the printer attached had to be on.  Go figure.  I tested this and I'm 100% sure.  I'm giving the poits because I took WAY too long to answer.
