Windows Print Spooler


Windows Print Spooler can cause this error if there are too many. Any error message : “An application error has occurred and an application error log is being generated. SPOOLSV.EXE Exception: access violation (0xc0000005), Address Parameter1.”

To resolve this problem, Remove the .SPL, .TMP, and any .SHD files currently in the print spooler directory. The default spooler directory is C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\SPOOL\PRINTERS. After you remove the files, restart the print spooler. Any jobs in the spool directory will be lost. If you’re unable to delete the files, turn the print spooler off. To do this, click Start, Settings, and Printers. Right-click the appropriate printer and select Properties. Select the Advanced tab and disable print spooling.
