Questions:

Are they connected to the machine in question? I.e. as networked printers are they shared on this machine or do you mean you connect to them over the network?

If you connect to remote printers are they connected to a server that handles it's own spooling? If so you can switch the printers to print directly to printer instead of spooling locally. In the Advanced tab... You gain nothing from spooling locally under normal circumstances if your print server spools as well. No point in queueing to join another queue.

First, check to make sure there is plenty of free space on your server's system drive -- the spool directory is created as a subdirectory of \winnt\system32 -- so if your system drive is low on space and a user sends a big color print job, it'll crash easily.

If that's not the issue, try updating the printer drivers on the server (make sure you update the Windows 9x and NT drivers too) and apply/reapply 2000 Service Pack 2.

If that doesn't work, delete all shared printers on the network.  Recreate them with NEW NAMES and the latest printer drivers.  Tell your users to delete the old printers then re-add the new ones.  This last step has worked every time I've done it.
