This is typically caused by a printer driver problem. I would recommend
obtaining the latest Windows XP printer drivers from the printer(s)
manufacturer. Also make sure that you have Service Pack 1 for Windows XP

One thing you could try as a test is to remove the printer or printers you
have installed and see if the problem continues.
