I am currently using a Win7x64 machine on which I have been printing over the network through my Windows 2008 server.  Everything has been fine on it for 8 months now.  Suddenly, yesterday all of the printers through that server are showing offline.  However, I can rdp into the server and print to the same printers from the server just fine.

I have restarted the print spoolers on both the server and the Win7 machine with no success.  I tried to uninstall one of the printers, but now I cannot reconnect it.  I get an error that says Windows cannot connect to this printer, and the details are Operation failed with 0x00000002.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
