    Any clue as to what printers you are running?
    Is 2003 Server patched and up to date?
    What antivirus are you running? Is it up to date?

      patches are not updated and anti-virus is not updated as well... we had this problem in the past but we just deleted the printers and re-created them but now the test pages are coming out all grable and i installed new drivers.

        Run Windows Update and AV update before you do anything else. If your system is not patched properly, you have a lot more to worry about than a mis-behaving printer!

        All printers are LAN and installed on the server, then shared out so clients can connect to them via the server?

        What sort of printers and network connection?
        (e.g. HP LJ5 using JetDirect)
