No longer printing...aaaagh

Help...I appear to have lost my printers.

I have been operating two printers through a data switch for ages with no problem whatsoever. I am using LPT1 and have just checked that it is operating ok.
When I select print from inside an app' the program freezes and I have to shut down the app through task manager (running win 2000 SP4)

It doesnt matter whiuch printer I select the result is always the same...cannot print a test page, once again everything freezes.

Both printers are epson and I have checked with the epson help line and run through their system checks.

Have checked all cables, they are fine.

Only thing different is I have just installed Office 2003, or rather just Word and Publisher from Office 2003.....I did not check the printers imediately after installing Office....I just mention it as it is the only thing that has changed on my system recently. Can one of the angels on this forum give me any pointers?

Thank you all in anticipation.

Not sure this will help, but have you updated the drivers for the PRINTERS??
