Print Spooler Problem - Windows Server

I am having problems with the print spooler service on one of my 2k server boxes. It keeps stopping for no reason and I have to manually restart it. The even log shows the following: Event ID 7031 The Print Spooler service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 3 time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 0 milliseconds: No action. Has anyone come accross this before? Is there any way to have the service restart automatically as there is not always someone available with admin rights/skills to restart the service. Thanks...

    Default Print Spooler Problem

    I am having problems with the print spooler service on one of my 2k server
    boxes.

    It keeps stopping for no reason and I have to manually restart it.

    The even log shows the following:

    Event ID 7031
    The Print Spooler service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 3
    time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 0 milliseconds:
    No action.

    Has anyone come accross this before?

    Is there any way to have the service restart automatically as there is not
    always someone available with admin rights/skills to restart the service.

    Thanks

    Default Re: Print Spooler Problem

    Look at the Properties of the Print Spooler service - on the "Recovery" tab,
    you can specify that the service should automatically restart if it fails.
