Printer spooler subsystem app error, how do i fix?
First, I am using windows xp pro. I am receiving a "printer spooler subsystem app error" when I try to print a pdf(actually send it to the printer, not create), or when I am in quickbooks and trying to print to create a pdf. I have tried finding/deleting the shockwave files in the folder c:\windows\system32\spool\printers but I am unable to see any files there(i have looked for hidden files/folders). I am using a dell printer, but this has been going on since before I even had this printer. I am assuming this means my drivers for the printer are ok because the error was there before I had this printer. Any help????
do some troubleshoot
first check running apps that may be related and check the print spool service up and down service at lease twice. then if nothing happen restart the computer. good lock.
