I've seen this on stand alone comptuers. The exact same thing, it is there and then they get some kind of spooling errors and then the printer is removed from the printer folder. I fixed these by uninstalling the printer (after a reboot) and then reboot again and then reinstall all over again after doing a scandisk.
