Hello,

I'm having problems w/ my windows 2000 sp4 server printing. I have about 7 printers that are shared on this server. Computers can print fine, but sometimes all printers stop printing. When I go and check the spooling service, it is started… I tried to restart the service and all comes back to normal…  it seemed like this happened more at night, so I created a batch file that restarts the spooling service at morning… but the problem is happening more and more often….

Besides reinstating the OS… is there something else I can do???
