Description: Edit

When you run "control printers" the loading bar in Explorer will take a long time, and the Window will be blank indefinitely. This is almost always caused when Windows has an incorrect driver loaded for a printer

To Resolve: Edit

1. Run - cmd- net stop spooler (This stops the printer spooler service)

2. Go to C:\windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS and C:\Windows\System32\spool\DRIVERS and delete any files there. Windows will re-create these automatically. Make sure to keep 

3. Run - cmd- net start spooler (This starts the printer spooler service)

4. Install only printers that you know the driver is correct for, remove any older printers if not in use.
