Spool32 error

Last Modified: 2010-03-18
I have about 14 computers on a peer-to-peer network using Windows 98 SE as the OS on all the machines. I have an 80 col. dot matrix printer connected on one of the machines. This printer is shared. One other machine had this same printer installed as network printer. Some problem happened and then I started getting an error message as follows:

Spool32 caused a stack fault in module Kernel32.dll at 0167:bff7a2al followed by Regiters: and some odd alpha numeric combinations.

I can neither delete nor print using this printer. Just pointing to the printer hangs up the system and the only option is to hard boot the system.

Please explain and resolve the problem.
