Windows 7: Print Spool issue

Print Spool issue

Has anyone come across an issue where any printer directly connected to the system suddenly stops working and shuts the print spool down? I go to restart the spool, print the test page and BAM! print spool has been stopped.

At first thought it was a possible infection but I can't find one. Performed a sys restore and it worked only to have a windows critical update start it all over again.....

Stuck on not having a solution....

Any ideas?

I will remember that the next time my client calls me. I got it to work after running combofix...wondering if it's not a deeply embedded bug.....

It will happen again, thanks for the suggestions!
