Win7 Enterprise - Printer Spooler
Posted on 2010-11-22
There are many users in our firm that occasionally can't print all of a sudden. If I restart the printer spooler service the issue is always immediately fixed. This happens to most everyone at my firm at some point. I don't have anything unusual installed on our win7 enterprise dell latitude laptops. Every laptop is the same model Dell. Our users printer to a print server and have about 4 different printers to choose from. - a few older model HP printers, a Dell printer, and a Ricoh copier.
This seems like a Microsoft bug. Anyone have an ideas for a fix? I don't want to do anything too drastic considering this is not a consistent issue and can be resolved by restarting the printer spooler service.
