I am working on a small office peer to peer network. I have a Canon MP240 printer locally connected to a vista 64 bit computer through USB. I loaded the driver for the printer on a Win 7 64 bit computer with no problems. When I try to print from the Win 7 computer using the Cannon printer on the Vista computer, I get an error stating that " Spooler Subsystem stopped working and was closed", on the Vista computer. Also, on the vista computer all the printer drivers listed under the printers disappear. I have to reboot the computer to get them back.

I can print fine from the Vista computer to the Cannon printer.
Print sharing is set on the Vista computer.
The printer is set to share.
I ran updates and found one for the printer, but no good.

I'm not sure what to try next and would appreciate siome help. Thanks.
