the registry key for the printer pointing to the drivers got corrupted:
Start -> Run - Regedit -> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SYSTEM -> ControlSet001 ->
Control -> Print -> Environments -> Windows NT x86 -> Version -3 -> Remove
All Printers From Here (Delete HP First See If that resolves the problem)
That should fix all issues to the SubSystem App crashing, after you delete
the registry entry, start the printer spooler and reinstall the printer
drivers, most likely Vista will have these drivers built in.
corrected the problem by deleting the printer entries in the registry as per this thread. However, Vista will not now automatically recognize the HP LJ1022 usb printer. Can't seem to get it to autoinstall.
Go into the Properties of your printer and see which port it is
assigned to. Is it assigned to a USB port or a LPT port?
The most common reason for the spooler to go down is when a bad driver gets
installed. Because of the way printer connections work, you could have
gotten a new driver & not really noticed it.
Temporarily deleting all of your printers & removing their drivers from the
system should allow the spooler to become stable again. Assuming that stops
the spooler crashing problems, add them back one at a time until the problem
comes back. The printer that causes it to come back is either in need of an
updated Vista driver, or simply won't work with Vista until such time as the
hardware vendor produces an updated driver.
It can be difficult to remove drivers when the spooler won't stay up very
long. If you have problems with that, see the support microsoft article in my previous post.
