Print Spooler Keeps Crashing on Windows 7

The reason for print spooler crashing on windows 7 machine can be corrupted print driver or it could be windows update.

I have tried many different solution and only one solution worked for me and also for couple of my clients.

I am sure this solution will help and solve print spooler issue on your windows 7 computer.

First of all delete all installed printers from  Devices and Printers ( Click Start and right hand side you will see devices and printers).

Then Delete following folders:

 C:\Windows\System32\spool\printers  and  C:\Windows\System32\spool\drivers

Restart computer.

Now install Printer again and it will do trick.

If this solution works for you please leave comment so it can help others as well... We are here to HELP ..
