problem with 'spoolsv.exe' process

Hi

We have Windows 2000 Small Business Server, that is also an application and
terminal server.
All users (about 10) are connected to server using application installed on
it, and also about 2-3 terminal users.
The problem is, that the 'spoolsv.exe' process is using 50-55% all the time,
and when some user prints something from application it get's to 80-90%, and
stays there.
I restarded 'print spooler' service, and CPU got back to normallu usage, but
after a few minutes 'spoolsv.exe' back to 50% of CPU.
I checked server for viruses and spyware...
What could cause this? Any help or information what to look would be
appriciated.

Best regards
Miha

Crappy Printer driver?

Unsingned printer drivers can cause all sorts of problems, including this.
