I keep getting a "print spooler sub system app" error. I have tried many fixes, but none have worked. I have un installed and reinstalled the printer software, deleted the regestry keys as per Micosoft instrustions, and ran the micronsoft Fix It program. After each fix I could get about 3 or 4 pages printed off before the error would come back. Any insight would be greatly appericated.

Welcome to Geeks To Go!, Jscyphers

Try this if you haven't already tried it:

1. Temporarily stop the "Print Spooler" service by going to Start >> Run, type services.msc and press <Enter>

2. Scroll down to "Print Spooler", double-click it, then click it's 'Stop' button.

3. Now open this folder: c:windos/system32/spooler/printers

4. Delete any .shd or .spl files that are in the 'Printers' folder

Now restart the 'Print Spooler' service by repeating steps 1 & 2, but this time click it's 'Start' button.
