Print spooler crash on 2003 Server SP2

P: n/a
If I'm posting in the wrong group please let me know. We've been experiencing
issues with the print spooler service on our print server running Windows
Server 2003 SP2. Occasionally the service will fail without any specific
errors. In the event viewer there will be the following error, event ID 7031
"The Print Spooler service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 2
time(s). The following corrective action will be taken in 60000
milliseconds: Restart the service" I've set the service to restart
automatically if the service crashes, but I'd like to fix this issue once and
for all. I have a mini dump file that is created when the services crashes,
but I don’t have a Dr Watson log file to look into. There are no unwanted
services running on the server, and the antivirus doesn’t scan the spooling
directory. I'm really at a lost on this problem. If anyone can point me in
the right direction this would be greatly appreciated.
