Print job hangs when printing PDF's from Outlook on Terminal Server

I am having an issue where my users are on a Windows 2008 R2 Terminal server & when they attempt to print a PDF they opened in Outlook it locks up the printing on Terminal server to where no one can print & the only way to get printing back is to stop & start the spooler service on both the Terminal Server & on the Print Server.

Any ideas?

If you mean print TO a pdf (not print a pdf off a printer) we have had this issue and it was resolved by changing the location of the pdf outputfile to a local directory instead of a network share.
