Printing problem "Spool32"

Printing problem "Spool32"

Printing problem "Spool32"

I am writing a program which makes up puzzles of various types and prints out worksheets for teachers to use.  All is going well except that sometimes, when printing, I get the following message and the printer will not work again until I restart my computer.

SPOOL32 caused an invalid page fault in
module KERNEL32.DLL at 016f:bff7b9a6.

I am a teacher, not an expert in programming.  Could someone please explain what this is all about, and suggest what might be causing it.
