I think I have a bad print driver that is causing my print spooler service to stop. The only error I see is in my event log saying the service stops. I can't seem to remove the printer director from CP/Device and Printers. Since service stops, print management doesn"t show anything. I tried going through registry and deleting printers I see but no joy. I changed settings to autotrys to restart service and service starts but always stops eventually.
One of the printers in my CP shows driver unknown and I did not see a registry entry for it so suspect that is the one I need to figure out how to remove. MS Mr. Fixit does not seem to work for 8.1. Other automated utilities do not seem to work.
I do have 2 HP printers but suspect issue is with Xerox Copier driver.
