    Two computers on my network at work have begun running EXTREMELY slow. I checked their task managers and both said that CPU usage was at 100%. This isn't good, right? Usually it's under 10%. Spoolsv.exe under processes was showing up to 99 under CPU at times. Other than that, all the processes appeared normal. Being as how I know there are a lot of computer savvy people around here, can anyone advise a place to begin trouble shooting, or suggest what the heck is going on? Thanks in advance for any responses.

    Thanks for the quick response Heyder. ABW is the best place to ask questions
    Both use XP. Actually just got an IM saying that a third computer is experiencing the same thing. On XP as well. All on the same network.

    grayday...

    check your printer paths, clear or purge any print documents in que...they may be causing packet collisions in your network.

    Just realized that spoolsv.exe was a process for printers! Cleared the que and everything was better duh!
    Thanks for the help!
