  2. Restart the Print Spooler service

    What type of printer do you have? I've seen the runtime error with some HP
    drivers trying to do something in the wrong session context.

  3. well unfortunately, i have the same problem... it's only just started
    happening after I installed an MS update today (12/27/07)...

    the print spooler keeps trying to restart and then bumming out with the same
    error message (c++ runtime error in spoolsv.exe)...

    Here is a copy from the logs

    The funny thing.... the only printer I have is a network printer that I use
    at work (via WiFI) and that's very rare.
