Yes I have had that problem on 2000 and 2003 machines and every time its a result of a bad print driver our of an outdated driver.

If its an HP printer/driver you would be surprised how many files are shared by different model HP printers on a server. Update all of your print drivers and clean out old stuff you don't need anymore.
