Printer Problems

I tried to install USB to Parallel printer cable to a parallel printer and started having problems with all printers even network printers. It keeps telling me the print spooler is not started to start the print spooler or restart the computer. Then I got the following message " Function address 0x69de7ba5 caused a protection fault. (exception code 0xc0000005)
Some or all property page(s) may not be displayed. I can not connect to certain printers until I restart the print spooler then I can connect one time then have to restart the print spooler again.

What does the event viewer report? It should give some (normally highly vague) reason why the print spooler service stopped.

Print spooler runs on demand. There is no way to keep it running unless you share printers on the network.

hp module crashes. please change print processor to winprint, and/or use driver designed for Windows 7

I would uninstall the USB to parallel adaptor and its driver, as that is probably the source of the problem.
Make sure that you have the correct windows 7 driver for the adaptor.

hpzpnp is printer detection tool from HP
probably USB-LPT connector is not bi-directional enough for it....
Can you mention make and model of your USB-LPT and model of your HP printer?
i will suggest "simplest" drivers just to make it work.

I have repaired it myself. I restored it to an earlier date then restalled the updated drives for the USB to parallel printer. And all is working.
