History of Print Spooler Problem
Printer spooler or Print Spooler as this is the correct name of problematic Windows service started causing major problems on users computers in late 2001. Yes, thats the time when Windows XP was released and this operating system has a lot of problems with print spooling. First of all some computer viruses used vulnerability in Print Spooler to infect PCs all over the world. After various updates spooler subsystem just started to crash occasionally after reboot or when trying to print or when you try to install new printer or even randomly. This is not a big deal when you are at home doing simple printing job, but if this problem appeared in office thats serious issue.
Microsoft first released several KB articles with some instructions on how to deal with this problem, but those instructions contained quite complex (for non tech people) set of actions including editing registry keys and working in Command Prompt. In 2006 Windows Vista was released and many users thought they can forget about this problem with new operating system. However, Vista not only has the same problems with print service, but also huge problems with fixing this problem manually due to new security features.
