Windows 7, Print Spooler Service Keep Stopping

I fixed it by using print management in administrative tools. Go to "Adminitrative tools" in Control Panel and then to "Print Management". Check under drivers and remove all duplicate drivers. If you are unable to remove a driver check to see that no print jobs are waiting to execute and remove them. Restart the spooler service under Sevices.


First give yourself ownership and full access to c:\windows\system32\spoolsv.exe

Then run cmd as Administrator and run this command:

del /Q C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS\*.*
