Windows 7 Enterprise x64 Print Spooler issue


  • Hello,

    I am running Win 7 Enterprise x64 and have several users that will have intermitent print spooler crashes.  The only system event I get says "A timeout (3000 milliseconds) was reached while waiting for a transaction response from the spooler service.".  When I try to restart the Print Spooler Service it will freeze up, give me an error message, and then go to a stopped state.  I can then simply start it again and everything works for a time, but then it rears it's ugly head again.  I have tried to delete all old printers in the spool folder and registry as well.

    Any tips are appreciated.

    Thank you
