    Do you need it/use a printer? If not just disable it in services.

    you really haven't given us any useful information.

    print spooler crash, ok - that is actually pretty common. if it happens regularly it is (hopefully) your drivers are corrupt, try removing and reinstalling the printer.

    if still no go, what are you trying to print? certain printers and win 7 have problems with PDFs, especially large ones. in the print options under advanced choose print as image and that should bypass the pdf issue.

    if neither of those are it - then it is one of the other thousand things that can cause a spool crash. more info needed. printer model, age, etc. other issues. how long has it happened. do you have any other hardware to troubleshoot with (another printer/computer, etc?) also scanners and digital cameras can affect the print spool, pretty much any digital imaging device CAN , though if the drivers are proper they shouldn't.

    Try going to the services location in the system. Right click it and make sure shes running as an administrative service. That should do it.

    Create another profile on your PC and then try from that profile just to eliminate it being a stupid setting some where in your everyday PC profile.

    Right click my computer/ manage/ local users and groups/right click users and select new user/

    Good luck:toast:
