Print Spooler stops- Error 1000 & 1001

Hi,

The Print Spooler service on our previously stable Windows Server 2003 Standard Ed (SP1) has recently started crashing. It may be coincidental, but:
a) It started happening shortly after running Windows updates for a handful of security patches.
b) It seems to happen every time we connect to it remotely with via Terminal Services.

The most detailed error given is:
"Faulting application spoolsv.exe, version 5.2.3790.1830, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 5.2.3790.1830"

We have two printers off this box, a Sharp MX-4501N and a Konica 7165. Per an previous suggestion on this site, I have tried reinstalling the latest vendor supplied drivers and restarting the spooler service. That didn't work.

We recently tried disabling "Connect client printers at logon" under Terminal Services Configuration. It's too soon to know if that helps. Thank you VERY much for your assistance!

I have not tried CleanSpl. I'll try it as soon as possible, but I'll need to schedule an outage first. Any other suggestions?

It looks like the problem was resolved when we disabled "Connect client printers at logon" under Terminal Services Configuration.
