[Win7Pro/64/SP1/Dell 980 on local LAN with XP and MacAir] Periodically, and sometimes daily, at bootup, I get Event ID 315/Error 2114, to wit: "The print spooler failed to share printer HP LaserJet P2050 Series PCL6 with shared resource name HP LaserJet P2050 Series PCL6. Error 2114. The printer cannot be used by others on the network." Despite the error, I can print to my Network printer
, but the error in the log persists. I have read just about everything I can find on this, posted here on this, tried every solution from changing Group Update to turning off IPv6. Sometimes after following the advice here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd393219%28v=ws.10%29.aspx
with gpupdate, the error does not appear in the log. Then I'll update a program or install a Win update and 315 is back.
Here's the XML View:

<Execution ProcessID="1672" ThreadID="2512" />
<Security UserID="S-1-5-18" />

<Param2>HP LaserJet P2050 Series PCL6</Param2>
<Param3>HP LaserJet P2050 Series PCL6</Param3>
Checking dependencies for the Server service, I find Security Accounts Manager set to started/automatic and same for Remote Procedure CAll (RPC). But the drivers, Server SMB 1.xxx and SMB 2.xxx, though both "started," are set to manual. I also checked the dependencies in Print Spooler service and all, including HTTP, are set to started/automatic.
Since this is listed as an error instead of a warning, I'd like to troubleshoot it and correct it, but I've reached the limits of my trouble-shooting ability and need some direction.
