Have you waited to see if the computer is actually locked up? Printers of the age of your system had thier own engine to process the print job. Now with faster processors the printers rely on Windows and your processor entirely to handle the print job. Is this a new occurance or a new printer installation?

Try setting the spool setting different ways. You can instruct to start printing right away ar sinish spooling. I would try right away. Also try using the capture printer port option. Find both of those options in printer settings> details.
