Spoolsv.exe generates errors

Windows NT, Windows 2000 and Windows XP have a reported problems with printing
where you get the message upon boot or when trying to print:

Spoolsv.exe has generated errors and will be closed by
Windows. You will need to restart the program. An error log is being created.

You will find that the Spooler service has stopped. Restarting it does
not clear the problem. I strongly suggest delete all files in the
SYSTEM32\SPOOL\PRINTERS folder. In many cases, this resolves the problem.

Microsoft reports in Q257859 that the installation of BitWare for Windows can cause
the problem in W2K and XP. If you have the problem and are a BitWare user, you
could uninstall it to see if it is the basis of your problems.
