Vista Business - Print Spooler will not stay up
I upgraded from XP to Vista last week. Since then I can not print any
large documents. It will print a few pages and then stop. When I go
to printers I have no printers. I normally have two local and 6
network printers showing.

When I check the print spooler it is not running. I changed the
restart parameters to always restart, but there are times when it
takes a while before restarting.

If I click in the printers window the print spooler cancels and
restarts. If I display the properties on a printer the spooler
restarts.

Any ideas?

Re: Vista Business - Print Spooler will not stay up
If you had a Dell printer installed you needed to run the Dell upgrade
software before upgrading to Vista.


Most likely some print software is corrupting the memory used by the print
spooler and forcing the process to terminate.
