Print Spooler autometically stop working in windows 2008 server.

In our office we have a windows 2008 server with AD. In this server also installed 5 shared  network printers. Which is accessible  by all users in our intranet. Also installed Print inspector software for tracking usage of printers. From the last one month we have found one problem that print spooler is automatically  stop working after 3 to 4 hrs. We have to restart this service manually again. For cross checking purpose we have disabled the print inspector service for one days. But problem still persist . Now my question is why this is happening and what is the solution.

Thanks in advance.

Have you verified that the print drivers you have are the latest and are for server 2008.
Are these just printers or are any of the device multifunction(ie print-scan-fax ).
Do you have 32 bit or 64 bit drivers ?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Are there any events written to the system or application event log? Some troubleshooting steps might be to make sure all printer drivers are up to date and make sure you have the latest version of print inspector installed.

Print Inspector version is 6.0. All the printer drivers are installed from original media.  I have checked Event Viewer and found below mentioned error code.

I have Open Windows Explorer, refer to C:\windows\system32\spool\printers and delete all the files under this folder. After rebooting the server problem has been resolved.

Thanks again .
