Default crystal rep printing problems in win NT

hi,
i have developed application which generates docs using crystal report (vb.net 2003)

now the prob is some time reports get disaligned i mean some field or border line. i dont know why i have tested on my development machine and also on clients machine.

so does any one know or have any idea of any code or control (during design time)that makes report "fix" i mean that doesn't move
i know this sounds like crazy but this prob is driving me crazy at the moment.

second thing is this application genrates perfect reports in win 2000 and xp

but in NT i am having probs i mean all sorts of wierd probs
for example below is the text that should come up on the report


abcdefgh
abcdefgh
abcdefgh

now what happens is in preview report looks fine
but when i print it
it prints

abcdefgh
  bcdefgh
abcdefgh

you might think that i forgot a in second line , but no thats what happening now
i dont know why it chops of first letters of some line
most interesting thing is

i did printed report in morning it was whole perfect and then when i did in afternoon it was totally mad and disaligned , this happened with all reports

another interesting thing is if i print same report from another computer or user's (same company) NT machine it chops off some other characters or it some times print perfect.

so in conclusion
there is total inconsitency going on when printing same report from same computer at diff time and also same report from diff computer at same time.
disalignment,leters getting chopped things like that

now 1 reason i think is the clients systems
which are
NT
300 MHZ celeron processor
160 MB ram

and database is MS access which is on the network , not on the client machine

now i have tried and copied the dbase and pated it on client machine and printed but same problem
so its not the prob that dataBASE is on network

i have tried same application on an XP machine with 256 or more ram and higher processor in office at same clients place
it works fine .

so does any one know s any patches for NT or updates or any thing that might solve this issue.

thanx in advance
Nilesh
