Most likely it is a bad printer driver causing the issue. Try updating the printer drivers on the system.
If all are up to date, it may be one of the spooler files is corrupt. spoolss.dll or spoolsv.exe

it is certainly due to a faulty driver.
clean the print hive, make sure no printer is using third party print monitor or print processor, they have to be microsoft default.
exclude the spooler folder from antivirus scan, delete *.bud, *.spl, *.shd files from the system.
