I keep having this problem with the print spooler on my windows 2000 server, its happens atleast once a day and there is no pattern or anything that can be identified to what is causing the spooler service to crash.
I have visited the microsoft website and requested the hotfix 820550 (Spooler Service Crashes When You Submit a Print Job and an Event ID 7031 Message Is Logged in the System Log) which microsoft sent me link and I downloaded.
Once I applied this patch about an hour later the print spooler service crashed again. Are there any other fixes or issues that could be causing this spooler service to crash apart from windows?
the messgae is:
24/11/2004 8:58:26 AM Service Control Manager 7031 SQLSERVER
The Print Spooler service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 0 milliseconds: No action.
