Windows 7: Printer service stops

Printer service stops

I have a windows system that is using networked printers of various types and sometimes when the user goes to print, it will not work because the printer spooling service turns itself off. I need to know why this is happening and how to prevent this from happening. It doesnt seem to be a driver problem because they have been uninstalled and reinstalled in compatibility mode and didnt work. thank you for any help.

What's the printer out of interest?
Does it happen with more than one printer?
Any errors in the Windows Event log (eventvwr)?
