The printing bug in SP3 was fixed about a month after the release
of SP3. It is of course not present in SP4.
Every SP introduces new problems. There are a number of post-SP4

fixed since SP2 is rather larger than the number of newly
I hope that you have been applying security hotfixes?
If SP4 doesn't solve your problem, please repost with some more
details on the problem:
* anything in the EventLog?
* does it spontaneously continue to work again after some minutes
or do you need to kill processes or even reboot the server to
* while it hangs, can you still logon to the console?
* if you can, have you checked in Task manager if any processes
are taking 100% of the CPU?
* have you checked the status of the printer spooler service?
