print spoolsv high cpu

Windows server 2008 standard, 32bit, running terminal server.
The spooler subsystem app allways has high cpu utilization on this process. I have 5 servers like this and they all have the same issue.

I just checked back on server that I made change on and cpu utiltization is still using 50% on spoolersv process. Do you suggest trying kb/2479235 hotfix?
