    On a fresh install of SBS2K3 after installing 2 printers (HP Business inkjet 2300 and HP Business inkjet 3000) we are getting the following error:
    ---------------------------------------------
    Event Type:        Error
    Event Source:       Application Error
    Event Category:      (100)
    Event ID:          1000
    Date:                  30/03/2006
    Time:                 10:29:01

    Description:
    Faulting application spoolsv.exe, version 5.2.3790.1830, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 5.2.3790.1830, fault address 0x0002f527.
    ---------------------------------------------
    The Server is a brand new HP ML110 and the printers are fairly new - all was working fine on the last server (before it was stolen) and the drivers are exactly the same ones used as on the last server.

    It seems to handle the odd small print, but then the Print Spooler service crashes unexpecedly...

    Any ideas? - Urgent reply would be great!

    Also, have you tried cleanspl.exe from the 203 Server Resource Kit?  Download link here:

    Give that a go and see what results.  It shouldn't have too much impact since you can't print anyway. :)
