Print spooler crashes
Posted on 2011-11-01
We encounter a very special problem on our Windows 7's PCs.
Since a few weeks, every time we've tried to open a session on a domain computer, we are blocked on the welcome screen during about 5 minutes.
After we try a lot of things, we have found that the problem seems to be bound with the print spooler, indeed, when we stop it remotely, the session opens directly after.
We have changed the printer (before we had a HP LaserJet 4250n), stopped the install of it from GPO (prefecences), installed it directly on the computer, cleaned the server registry (erased all traces of the printer and the port)
We have formatting and reinstalling all the computers but nothing change, the spooler always crashes.
Which is strange is that the problem is not percistant and difficultly reproducted (when don't know how to reproduce it)
Any Idea ?
Thank's a lot for your answers
