    Hello.
    We are running a Windows 2003 Server domain, with a mixture of 98,XP,
    and 2000 clients...
    Every once in a while, a random XP, or 2000 PC will not be able to print.
    If we look in the servers management console under System Tools/Shared
    Folders/Opened Files, the pc in question has hundreds of printer driver
    files opened for the various printers that are installed in the office.
    We thought that maybe the PC was updating its drivers, but this process
    can last a whole day. Even if we reboot the PC in question, once it has
    reconnected to the domain the same thing will happen...
    It does stop after many hours, but as you can imagine the users are none
    to happy about their inability to print!
    All XP and 2000 PC's are using XPSP2 and 2000SP4 respectively.
    Any help on this issue would be greatly apreciated.
    Thanks in advance.
