Reboot when trying to print to a network printer

I have an XP (SP2) client that tries to print to a Canon iR3035 network printer (on a W2K3 print server). The client instantly reboots itself when I try to print a Webpage or email. Nothing appears in the Event logs and no spool file is created. No other clients have this problem and all use the same driver. I have deleted and recreated the printer on the client using 'Add network printer' wizard. Before I have to re-image the machine has anyone experienced a similar problem..?

Thanks for any help.

Doing it remotely uses your local spooler hence the difference. Id just reimage and be done with it.

Thats not aproblem many will have seen, I think you may find that a reimage doesnt fix it either, sounds like faulty hardware tbh but re-image it first.

Thanks Plug1.. another even stranger thing.. I logged in to the client remotely (using RDP) and the printing worked.. sat at the machine and logged in locally (both as Admin) tried to print and the crash/reboot happened..!

Does it give a blue screen while crashing?
If yes, let me know if it creates a memory dump (memory,dmp) file.
