Ways to resolve errors with print spooler with the help of Windows® Registry
How can Windows Registry be used to solve print spooler errors?
Print spooler is a software program that manages all the printing jobs on your computer. Print spooler sends printing requests to the printer or to the print server. Print spooler also helps to delete print jobs being processed. While trying to start or stop print spooler service, or when you click 'Start' and then click 'Printers and Faxes', you may get the following error message: “Spooler subsystem app has encountered a problem and needs to close”. And when you try to print, you receive the following error message: “Operation cannot be completed”. You can get these error messages if a third-party printer driver or service affects the function of a newly installed printer.
Role of Windows Registry to fix these error messages with print spooler service:
- Role of Windows Registry
- Remove Windows NT subkeys
- Remove registry entries for default print monitors
Role of Windows Registry
A third-party printer setup may get installed on the registry and this may create serious issues like displaying error messages in print spooler. So you may need to remove all unwanted entries from the registry. Also, you need to be very careful while modifying the registry. Serious issues may occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems may even lead you to reinstall the Operating System.
Remove Windows NT subkeys
In order to fix this issue you need to remove the registry entries that cause issues for Windows NT x86 service subkeys. These may get installed by third-party printer setup programs and may interfere with print spooler service. You need to keep drivers, print spools, and registry entries that were included with Windows and you need to remove all the other drivers, print spools, and registry entries that may be causing issues.
You need to remove print monitor subkeys that interfere with the printer that you use. These print monitor subkeys may get installed by other third-party printer setup programs. You need to keep print monitors and registry entries that were included with Windows and need to remove all other print monitors and registry entries that may be causing issues.
