Not that I'm aware of.  

Due to issues such as that I ditched shared network printers and just installed printers as local IP printers, using the IP address as the Port.

This meant that a problem for one user didn't affect all users

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you have several users on different workstations, that print to the same printer is impractical to have to manually install the printer drivers on each workstation. It is definitely easier if you have the printers drivers installed on a dedicated print server. But definitely problems arise when a document gets stuck in the print queue, it will affect all users who print to that printer. Restarting the print spooler with often resolve the issues. But you can also try deleting all the documents that are currently in the print queue when logged into the print server.

Apologies for the delay.  The content of the bat file can be found below >

net stop spooler && net start spooler

I scheduled it to run at midnight, with highest privileges, regardless of whether the user account (Dom Admin) was logged in or not.
