office 2k program errors on w2k

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?

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 !

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?

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.
