System hangs after print instruction

O/S W2k Pro. MS Office 2000.

An annoying problem has popped up recently. If I give a 'print' or 'save' command the PC seems to hang, with the blue border at the top (can't recall the proper name for it) flashing. It'll sit like that for ages, but if I simply open Task Manager, the print or save command box immediately appears without any further action.

Has anyone else had this problem, because it's affected 2 PC's in the office and my own PC at home.

All have had recent MS updates!

Is this the one 'Microsoft .NET Framework version 1.1'? I uninstalled it (don't really need it) and it cleared up some probs.

I don't know, I did a few updates together. (Big mistake - I know).

Did you encounter a similar problem to mine?

They weren't the same probs, mine were to do with certain applications and ie, but I've had no probs with all updates up to sp4, but only with the Net one. May be worth uninstalling it to see if it clears it.
