crashes the spooler printers dissapear. in the past we have ghosted the machines to fix. found a fix online that worked great.

Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP have a reported problems with printing where you get the message upon boot or when trying to print:
Spoolsv.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created.

You will find that the Spooler service has stopped. Restarting it does not clear the problem. I strongly suggest delete all files in the SYSTEM32SPOOLPRINTERS folder. In many cases, this resolves the problem.
