Hi,

Steps 1 - 8 on this link will help you: http://www.techsupportall.com/print-spooler-keeps-stopping-automatically/

You've either got a bad print job or driver problem. The solution above will help flush out the print job which is causing the service to cut out.

i would start by uninstalling the printer software completely; then reinstall it.
another way to tackle this, is doing a system restore to a day it was working
