Under the Services applet in the control panel go to and double click on the 
Spooler Service and Click on the recovery tab Set it to restart the service on 
first and second failure and to probably reboot on the third failure. You can 
also set it to run a script like at the the bottom of http://thin.net/print.cfm 
that resets the spooler and clears out the printer files.

I hadn't thought of the print spooler service failing. I just checked the
event log and did find that it had stopped unexpectedly twice (at least).
How do I make it automatically restart?
