Printers/spooler message that's meaningless
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
try the following...
Open a Run window (Windows Logo key+R),
type cmd and press Enter.
Now type these commands
NET STOP SPOOLER and press Enter
DEL %SYSTEMROOT%\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\PRINTERS\*.* and press Enter
NET START SPOOLER and press Enter
EXIT and press Enter
