Hey guys,

One of the Pc's here the Print Spooler just starts and then stops again repeatedly.

I checked the event logs it throws event ID 7034 and 7031.

How do i fix this?

Hi,

Did you try to remove the drivers and install it again?


You can also try this.
Remove the driver then go to:
1. Open regedit (e.g. click Start, key regedit and press Enter)
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers
3. Under this key, there will be the keys Version-2 and Version-3 (one or the other of these may be absent - not a problem)
4. The sub-keys under these contain the printer driver configuration information
5. Delete all the sub-keys inside Version-2 and Version-3, do not delete these keys only the sub-keys.
6. Install again the driver.

Let us know if helped.

Delete all the print job from this path “c:\windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS”
and try restarting the Print Spooler..
