I had the same issue. In my case an application (MapInfo) had settings that related to a printer that was no longer installed on the PC. Once the setting was removed/changed everything worked fine.

It may be something similar in your case as Spoolsv.exe handles print spooling. Make sure you also have the most current print drivers.

spoolsv.exe is a Microsoft Windows system executable which handles the printing process to your local printers. Note: spoolsv.exe is also a process which is registered as the Backdoor.Ciadoor.B Trojan. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer, stealing passwords and personal data. Try to scan your computer with antivirus software maybe this will help
