Printspooler service stops running when mapping to a specific network printer - windows xp Pro SP2

This happens on Windows XP Pro SP2 machine when mapping to a network printer ( just particular one)... print spooler service stops running.

So far I've done the followings -
Checked the C:\windows\system32\spool directory for some bad print files - there's none found
From Print - Server Properties - delected print drivers....so far only one workstation reported this. What else should I look into to get this fixed. Thx in advance. ..  

*** please seee attached screenshot for error message
