I have a client with a tablet I think it is surface.

one problem is that we can not delete 2 old printers + actual printer in the network. These are all IP base printers and I want to know how to delete the 2 old printers them. Another issue is that the print spooler is always stopping.

The error message is below:
The Collect Procedure for the "C:\Windows\System32\winspool.drv" service in DLL "Spooler"
generated an exception or returned an invalid status. The performance data returned by the
counter DLL will not be returned in the Perf Data Block. The first four bytes (DWORD) of the
Data section contains the exception code or status code.
