Print Spooler takes large % of CPU

P: n/a
I have a recurring issue with a Print Spooler on a Windows 2000 Server. A
print job will get stuck and take a large amount of the CPU time.

I stop the print spooler in Services, go into Windows (or Winnt) | System32
| Spool | Printers and delete all jobs in that folder and restart the print
spooler. This fixes the issue temporarily, but several days later, the same
process occurs.

Is there a way to trace where the stuck print job is coming from, or has
anyone run into this same issue?

Thanks,
David

You need to post to MS.public.windows.2000.General or some form of that name
that indicate Windows 2k. The is a .Net programmer's NG you are posting to
at this time.
