event 7034-printer spooler error

I have installed a new computer running MS XP Pro with SP3.  It has 1 local printer and 2 network printers.  after about a week, end user started getting this error message and all the printer icon's were missing from the "printer and faxes" page.  If I manually start the printer spooler service the icons come back, but if i try to print or open properties I get this error message again and the service is shutdown.  I tried a hot fix from Microsoft without seccess, and most of the solutions I have found on the internet refer to exchange server.

Would suggest that you start by deleteing the printers one-by-one and seeing if the issue dissapates.  It may be the driver for one of the printers or just corruption one of the networked printers.

I had to start the service, delete a printer, start the service, delete a printer, until all were gone and then reboot.  The computer openne with teh printer service started and then added the printers back in.
