Printers/spooler message that's meaningless

Question
QUESTION: Hello.  I have started receiving this message popping up on my screen over and over: Spooler Subsystem App has encountered a problem and needs to close.  

The thing is that my printer works fine - it's just that the message keeps showing up and I have to drag it aside.  Is there something else that is failing that this message is alerting me to?  How do I get rid of this message?  Thanks
Jonathan
