    Question keep losing printers and print spooler.

    Hi all

    I keep getting an error every time I try to print.

    'An unhandled Win32 exception occurred in spoolsv.exe{4056}'

    'An unhandled Win32 exception occurred in spoolsv.exe{264}'

    'An unhandled Win32 exception occurred in spoolsv.exe{3544}'

    There has probaly been some others but these are the most recent.

    After this I don't see a printer.

    I find that the local print spooler has normally stopped.

    I can restart it and see the printers again but as soon as I try to print I get one of these errors.

    The printer is network attached and anyone else can print to them.

    I have tried cleaning the registry and thought that had cleared the problem but it's come back.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, it's driving me nuts.

    Most likely it's a crap driver causing the problems...

    If you grab the kyocera printer driver cleaner that will clear up ALL references to your printer driver(s) and allow you to reinstall them fresh... I don't have the link for the kyocera util but a little hunting around should locate it.

    Might be worth cleaning out any old .spl files that might be hiding in your spool folder.
    (Usually C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\PRINTERS)
