prints spooler keeps failing on win 2003 server.

I have a server acting as a print server that has all of the sudden will not keep the print spooler service running.  

here is the event log: Event ID: 1000   Faulting application spoolsv.exe, version 5.2.3790.3959, faulting module tcpmon.dll, version 5.2.3790.3959, fault address 0x0000414b.

I have removed all receint installed print drivers.  I have re entered the tcpmon.dll into the registry, ran all windows updates, and still print spooler will not stay running.  

Any ideas??

If the Print Spooler service is not operational, or you want to make certain there are no printer driver remnants, either follow the instructions below or use cleanspl.exe from the Windows 2000, XP or 2003 Resource Kit (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...isplayLang=en).

cleanspl.exe from the Windows 2003 Resource Kit tools will work on Windows XP.
