I have a new windows server 2008 which the print spooler keeps shutting down.  It seems when a certain user/pc logs into the server there is a printer miss match and the print spooler shuts down and I can't seem to find in the logs which user or device is doing it?

Anybody using universal print drivers?

That's the first place I'd look.

Agreed. UPD's are a problem. We had a brand new E00X server and had the same problem. We had used the UPD for all of or Ricoh MFP's. One weekend the spooler kept dying. We changed the drivers to the PCL6 and the problem went away.
