*Print Spooler will not just stop for any reason. The print spooler is set up to restart 5 times after a failure. If the spooler continues to fail, there is an underlying issue causing it to fail. Go to: c:\windows\system32\spool\printers Delete all files inside this folder. Try and restart the spooler and monitor the event log to see if it is still failing. If it is still failing, the issue is a corrupt printer driver. Go to: c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers If your OS is 32 Bit go to : W32X86 If your OS is 64 bit go to : x64 *WARNING - THIS WILL DELETE ALL INSTALLED PRINTERS* Delete all files in this folder and reinstall your printer.
