Very slow reboot after printer barf.


Hollis Paul

A Vista Business 64-bit was booting fine until an Epson printer decided
that the ink was low, put a two page document into the queue, and never
operated properly since. We first deleted the printer object,
connected to another printer on another workstation, and were able to
print. But that failed on the second attempt to print, so we waited
for the refurb Lexmark to arrive. The Lexmark works fine, prints like
a champ, but the boot still takes forever.

Is there a log that I can look at to determine if time is being lost
while the boot process looks for the old Epson printer of the shared
printer on the other workstation? Is there a registry key that could
have outdated printer data?

The network is provided by a SBS 2003 installation at SP1.
