Hello,

Can you provide some more information on the error?  On the error screen where it shows spoolsv.exe not working, there should be a view details link.  Also, can you check the event viewer for any events relating to Print Spooler or Spoolsv.exe.  Can you post them?

In the meantime, when was the last time it worked?  Did you apply any windows updates recently?  Did you install any additional apps?  Have you scanned for viruses and malware?

Ok thanks for posting.  Looks like HpTcpMon.dll is also involved in the crash.  So I assume you have an HP printer connected to the this server.

I found a Microsoft KB article related to this here.

From what I read there, there is a registry edit that needs to be done so let's try this.

Workaround for the problem that is caused by the HPtcpMon.dll file

    Start Registry Editor.
    Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\HP Standard TCP/IP Port
    On the File menu, click Export.
    In the File name box, type HPprinter, and then click Save.

    Note If you want to restore this registry subkey, double-click the HPprinter.reg file that you save in this step.
    Right-click the HP Standard TCP/IP Port registry entry, and then click Delete.
    Click Yes.
    Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors\Standard TCP/IP Port
    Double-click Driver, and then verify that the value of the Value data box is tcpmon.dll.

    Note If the Driver registry entry does not exist or its value is not tcpmon.dll, create the Driver registry entry, and then set its value to tcpmon.dll. To do this, follow these steps:
        On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click String Value.
        Type Driver, and then press ENTER.
        Right-click Driver, and then click Modify.
        In the Value data box, type tcpmon.dll, and then click OK.
    Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
    Rename the HPtcpMon.dll file to "HPtcpMon.old." The file is in the following location:
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\HPTcpMon.dll
