Print spooler service crashing every half hour

Every half an hour the spooler service crashes on my 4month old 2008r2 sp1 print server. This server supplies 2x citrix xenapp servers and has the citrix universal print service etc installed on it. Enabled print driver isolation and set all drivers to isolate mode but make any difference.

Help!!

Yes, 7034/7036. No others. There were some driver specific ones on Thursday,  but after I removed those 3 printers, those have disappeared and only the service failure event appears.
In event 7034, what is description?

"The print spooler terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 64 times."

There is no other text. This is in the system section of the event log.
There is a similar entry in the Application section, which has a description as follows:

Thanks basraj.
When I try to run StressPrinters it says "The RPC server is unavailable"
Hi

Every 30 minutes a crash sounds to me something else is not going right. Did you check the basics like scandisk and SFC ? Did they come back clean?

I resolved it myself by searching on the net. I have accepted the comment by basraj as a part solution as his links to citrix stress printers and printer detective were very useful and likely would have detected the cause if I had been able to run them.
