Printer Spooler Will Not Remain Started

Posted: 12-04-2008, 04:46 PM
Have you had issues where Vista's Print Spooler service does not "remain"
started.

For some reason, on this client's new Vista Business workstation, I have to
keep going into the Control Panel's Service app and hit "Start" on the Print
Spooler service.

The service is configured to automatically start and I'm using the Local
System account for the Log On tab.

Any ideas?

this is normally caused by print drivers corrupting memory within the
process.
