We are using windows 7 - 32bit on a handful of machines but mainly 64 bit. We have all the latest Microsoft patches & updates installed.
Randomly on these machines we are getting the print spooler service stopping when users are trying to print. The error in the windows event log when this happens is always the same which I have copied below. I have also attached a print screen as the windows event log error is "1000".

The report in the C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\W
ue are all attached.
Based on the report error I goggled some info from it, this was it...
From that I found this - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2647753
but when we try and install it either on any OS or on the print server itself it just says "this update is not applicable"
Does anyone have any ideas? We are using a 2008 R2 as the print server, I initially thought it could be a "print driver" but when this happens there is nothing happening on the print server i.e. no errors etc, also doesn't matter what printer they use and we have a combination of cannon printers and HP printers.
Windows XP SP3 doesn't have the issue......
