Inventor plots extra lines

When plotting any IDW files to our full size plotter, I have ghost lines running through the drawing (lines that are not present in the drawing, on screen or preview) alomost like the plotter is printing extra extension lines on the drawings, overlaying 2 sheets on 1 drawings and even moving some text on the drawings. I have all the SP's and am lost. I can move to another computer and print drawings fine so its not a plotter issue. Please advise..!!  Thanks in advance.

When plotting the files from another computer they are all plotting from the same file, using the same plotter, program and OS. There are no differences in computers or programs from one to the other. I would like to also add i DO have all required updates and even re installed my plotter driver to no remedy.
