First of all, let's try to clear out the print queue:

1. Open a command prompt with full admin privileges:  click on the Start orb, enter cmd in the Search field, right-click on the command prompt icon and select Run as administrator

2. Within the command prompt enter net stop spooler

3. Use Windows Explorer to navigate to %systemdrive%\Windows\System32\spool\printers\ and delete all of the files within that folder

4. Return to your elevated command prompt and enter net start spooler

Reboot your machine and see if the problem persists.

If that doesn't alleviate the problem, try utilizing the Microsoft "Fix It" utility related to printing issues:

What printer are you trying to install and what connection type is it (USB, network)??

Does it have 64 bit drivers available and if so have you downloaded and installed the latest drivers BEFORE connecting the printer?

I've had problems with some Lexmark laser printer drivers built into Windows 7 that crashed the spooler service. Updated drivers fixed those issues.

It sounds like you have a few different elements in the equation.  I don't think that the print spooler is actually having (or causing) any problems.

You should be able to download the drivers for your Kodak ESP 5250 All-in-One from here:

Did you follow the exact sequence of events described in the section titled Installation Instructions on that page?

We are always glad to help, but for future reference it would definitely aid the contributing Experts if you mention your ultimate goal within the original problem description.  Based upon your first post, we couldn't tell that you were trying to install a printer... only that the spooler was having issues, so we replied accordingly.

If that's the case, you should be able to double-check which versions of the Microsoft .NET Framework you have installed by looking at the Programs and Features applet in the Control Panel.  You can uninstall them from there and then replace them with a clean version by downloading the full installer package from these locations:

Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service pack 1

Microsoft .NET Framework 4
