wfshell shell encountered a problem and needed to close.

We are using citrix presentation server 4.5 and we have 8 servers in are farm all are 2003 servers. Just recently I started getting the error on all 8 of the servers when I logon to them. Any ideas on what this means and how to fix this?

This can be a third party print driver have you made any changes to printer configuration or driver updates?

No we havent made any changes to the printer config or any driver updates. I'm not real familiar with printers in Citrix so how could I check to see if any driver updates have been done.
In the "CCC" under advanced setting, change the configuration from "reset" on a broken connection to disconnect. After this configuration is made, log off and log back on and terminate application by clicking on the "X" again. After you log back on, the wfshell error should not be there nor in the eventlog anymore. You can modify the idle timeout settings for users to control the number of active idle session on your Citrix Servers. Hope this helps and it is a relief to finally find the cause of this error.
