Terminal Service Locking Up After Office 2007 Upgrade

We have a customer that is running Windows Server 2003 Standard Terminal Server. They use Microsoft Office 2003. We upgrade to Office 2007 and now they complain of lockups. We do notice a lot of application hangs for EXCEL.EXE and OUTLOOK.EXE. Anyone have any ideas on this one?

This could be the printer spooler (old / bad print drivers) before you restart next time try this to fix it:

1. Stop print spooler.
2. Go to the system32 folder in Windows.
3. Open the Spool folder.
4. open the Printers folder.
5. Delet everything inside the printer folder.
6. Restart the print spooler. That should fix the problem.

If it works you got the source of your trouble :)

Turned out it was Office updates that needed installed, namely SP2.
