Several computer users who recently upgraded the operating system on their PC or laptop to Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10 complained that their computer printer is not working properly. If you are experiencing print spooler keeps stopping error and other common printer issues after upgrading to a new operating system, then the printer driver you are using might not be compatible with the new Windows operating system.
