i've been getting the error 'spoolsv.exe has generated errors' after login
on pretty much every machine in our building with iprint & zen 6.5 since
11/24/04. it pops up while the nal windows (called from O login script) is
loading. if i take NAL out of the picture, the error will still come up 75%
of the time. this error causes the spooler to stop, so i've set all of our
machines in the building to restart the print spooler 60000ms after every
failure. problem is, there's still a problem + iprint policies don't apply
when it errors out. i've tried zen agents 6.5 orig, 6.5 beta1, & now 6.5
beta2 + client 4.9sp1, sp2, & now sp2 'update D' + iprint client 3.09, 3.11,
and now 3.12. backend is nw6.5sp2 for zen box and iprint box, iprint box
now has iprint consolidated sp11 installed, didn't fix this issue.

what's really really weird, is that i set registry values to disable the
error message (errorcontrol=0) when the print spooler fails - which did the
trick for about a month BUT now we're getting errors again and it happens
75% of the time on login. and we have 8-9 users on each machine a day, so
it gets extremely annoying...

we are using DLU users, and i did modify the registry value below:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Print\Providers\Interne
t Print Provider]
"DisplayName"="HTTP Print Services"
"Name"="inetpp.old"

and here's dr. watson's event viewer entries:
