Print Spooler keeps stopping

Hello All,
I have a w2k advanced server and my print spooler keeps stopping. I go to services and start it but it starts and instantly stops. Any ideas why?

This is usually caused by a "bad" printer driver. See
http://members.shaw.ca/bsanders/CleanPrinterDrivers.htm, steps 6 and 7.

You might want to try removing one driver entry, then starting the spooler
again (steps 8 and 9). Repeat until the spooler stays running.

If you recently added or updated a printer driver, that may be a good one to
start with.

It's perfectly useless to know the right answer to the wrong question.

Look in system32/spool/printers and delete the printer spool files
that may be hung.
