What printer are you printing to - i.e., make and model number? Are you using the latest Vista drivers for that printer? Do you have antivirus software installed on your computer and if so, do you have an exclusion set for the C:\Windows\System32\Spool folder?
nbarakatAuthor Commented:
we have multiple printers here all of them run form our printer server.
i did not install yet the anitvirus as i just wiped out this laptop and before it  was working
i will check all driver and advise
nbarakatAuthor Commented:
i cannot even delete them from my profile. is there anyway i can stop vista form getting these printer from my server. it will effect everyone
Hypercat (Deb)Commented:
If this is causing the spooler on your server to quit, then it is almost definitely a driver issue.  If the printers are being managed through Group Policy, then the only way to uninstall them is to remove them from the group policy, or to remove your Vista machine from the OU or security group that is used to implement the group policy.  If the printers are not being managed through group policy, then you should be able to uninstall them from the Vista workstation, but you need to log on with local administrator permissions to do that.
