We have a laptop running windows 8.1 and every morning we have restart the print spooler service to be able to print anything.  The service is still running but we have to restart it.  I have tried deleting all printers and drivers and resinstalling but the issue still occurs.  Once it is restarted, prining is fine the rest of the day until the following day.
