Tip & How-To about Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64BIT Operating System Software OEM DVD
Aulty print drivers can give you a lot of headaches. In my case, print spooler was constantly crashing, or it was crashing when I tried to open Print Properties of the Print Device.
Since the problem is mostly in a faulty print driver here are the steps on how to remove the print driver from Windows 7. Procedure is slightly different from previous Operating Systems as now we'll have to use the Print Management tool.
Click Start (Win Orb)
Type: 'Print Management'
In the left pane navigate to: Print Servers ' PC Name (local) ' Drivers
Delete the faulty print driver, or if you're not sure, delete all of the Print Drivers listed.
Restart and try to download another/updated driver for your printer from the manufacturer's web site.
