Print Spooler keeps stopping

I have a laptop that is running Windows 10 and has been working fine but for the last couple of days the Print Spooler either doesn't start when Windows 10 boots up or the print spooler server keeps stopping when trying to print.

I have tried the following to resolve the issue but none of them has....
1) Sfc /scannow
2) Chkdsk c: /f /r
3) dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /checkhealth
4) Disk cleanup to remove temp and other unwanted stuff

Any help would be great?

RESOLVED, thank you.
Had to clear out the print spooler but after restarting Windows the spooler was running fine but wouldn't print.  I then uninstalled the printer and reinstalled it as Windows 10 is already up to date with it's updates and it now is printing fine.
Good to hear, glad we could help!
