SpoolerWin32SPL Errors

Posted: 10-24-2008, 02:06 PM
While checking my Event Logs I ran across some SpoolerWin32SPL errors that
all say:

The print spooler failed to reopen an existing printer connection because it
could not read the configuration information from the registry key
S-1-5-18\Printers\Connections. The print spooler could not open the registry
key. This can occur if the registry key is corrupt or missing, or if the
registry recently became unavailable.

Searching the web turns up others with the same issue, some who have simply
added the Connections key (mine is indeed missing) and the problem was
solved. Is this the suggested way to fix this issue?

Hey Sandy, the error is bogus since the System account S-1-5-18 cannot have
a printer connection. Ignore the error or add the key.
