I have a hp 1700 printer of which the spooler setting keeps changing back.
this happens about every 1 or 2 weeks.

the setting is under the advanced tab. it should be: print directly to the
printer. and it changes back to: Spool print documents so program finishes
faster.

info:
compaq dl380, win2000 print server. sp4. with 119 printers on it.

does annybody have a idea what this could be??

Greetings omko,
I would recommend you turn on auditing on that server.  Are you certain another admin is not adjusting these settings?

See:

Also - If it's just for the one printer - can you recreate the printer object and determine if it persists?
