    Disappearing Printers

    Is there anyone out there who knows of a solution for printers just disappearing from windows. We have some computers that every once in a while just lose all the printers. They try to print something and get no error message or anything - just doesn't print. When we look in the printers folder there are no printers showing. We reboot the system and they all come back. Then a few days later it will happen again. If anyone could shed some light on this problem for me I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thank you in advance.

    Are you sure there are no error messages? I've seen this happen a number of times with a "Spool32" error message.

    Yes I am sure there are no error messages - we have had some spool32 issues in the past but this one presents no error messages.
