The print spooler is stopping on a number of machines with HIPS install - version 126.96.36.1994 (P1). If HIPS is disabled then the spooler works ok and the users can print. If left enabled either in adaptive mode or with functions enabled then the spooler errors and the printers disappear.
I'd update the patch level to 4 although this brakes the network connection which is a no no during working/office hours!
