When logging into Citrix users freeze when mapping printers via login script - restarting print spooler fixes this. Problem is intermittent. Need permanent fix if anyone has any ideas. Currently running : Citrix Metaframe XP FR3  SP 3 on windows 2000 server.

    Hi Freddo,

    what other printer issues do you have?
    what printers are you using?

    do you find that the printer problems are all concerning a particular make/model of printer?

    i have had previous experience where a particular printer driver was causing issues with all printing, causing the spooler to stop etc.

    if you can narrow it down to one printer you can remove the driver from the printer folder - file - server properties - drivers and you can completely remove the printer driver from here. Deleting the printer alone will not resolve the issue.

    also, possibly, where are they printers? if they are across the WAN are they timing out and causing spooler to have a blonde moment?

    hope this is of some help

    Yep, Printer Drivers!!
    New printers sitting on 2000 server stopping the service ... removed them and scripts running fine now : )
    Will point user to older printer for the time being
    Thanks Gareth
