    Sounds like the spooler is crashing. This is normally caused by printer drivers. Try updating your printer drivers.

    If you open up Task Manager and look under Processes, monitor the size of spoolsv.exe

    As a quick workaround (in the meantime) copy this code into notepad and save as Spooler.bat. Use Scheduled Tasks to run the file every few hours (or whatever is necessary).

    Code:
    @echo off
    net stop spooler
    net start spooler

    as Michael said really...

    I had exactly the same issue when I installed a new printer on a dept staffroom PC.

    I didn't remove the previous printers' driver(s) and got the error message you've been getting. I removed all 'old' drivers then downloaded the latest driver for the new printer - problem solved.
