Windows error reporting causing print spooler to stop

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I have a user running Windows 7 that used easy transfer to move from Vista to 7 (a couple months ago).  The user's print spooler keeps stopping.  I read that it may be due to a corrupt printer driver, so I removed printers and deleted all drivers and reinstalled.  This worked for about a week and now the spooler keeps stopping again.  I Checked the event viewer and at the same time or 1 second before the print spooler stops the Windows error report event occurred.  After the spooler stops, if I restart the spool, it will stay running for a matter of seconds before it stops again.  A restart helps sometimes, but not always.

I attached a screen shot of the event log for the print spool stop
