Runtime Error! Program: c:\windows\system32\spoolsv.exe

Hello,
We are getting Runtime Error! Program: c:\windows\system32\spoolsv.exe sporadically on our server that host our printers.  This just started occuring and we have not added any new printers recently.  Does anyone know what this is and how we can fix it.  When it occurs we can not print until we restart the print spooler service.  thanks

There isn't a whole lot of information to go on here any additional information you can give would be helpful.  

I have found that a lot of times the client software for the printers gets added to print servers instead of just drivers.  Very often that client software can cause issues.  I know that Lexmark software is very much an issue on servers.

I found that disabling SNMP and bidirectional support helps unhose the print spooler in most cases.

I have changed the default printer on the server, and restarted and haven't seen the error again.
