Spoolsv.exe CPU usage high and no printing

I have a windows 2000 server box, I noticed that the CPU usage of the box is extremely high and no print jobs are in queue. I also notice on one of my switches that a department activity is very high. I disconnected and the spoolsv.exe went to 0%. i plugged back in the switch and noticed that the CPU usage sky rocketed. I then proceeded to find out what worksation is causing the problem and found that the spoolsv.exe on the individual was very high, i end the process and later on it popped back up.  I have ran anti-virus scans, online as well as the network scan which is updated. Any ideas?

I am having this problem on multiple machines.  I have uninstall the printer that they used and reinstall drivers, I even change the ip address of the Printer.

As before - this is normally down to a network printer with a generic/unsuitable driver.
Can you remove all the printer drivers from the server (as per: http://members.shaw.ca/bsanders/CleanPrinterDrivers.htm) then re-add them, and check for a reoccurance of the problem?
