On systems running MS Windows, which OS service manages the print queue?

EXPLANATION

The spooler service manages print jobs on Windows OS PCs.  Sometimes this service can get "stuck" and otherwise interrupt printing.  A quick and effective troubleshooting idea is to simply stop and restart the service.  This is done through an elevated command prompt:

net stop spooler

Then restart using the following:
net start spooler
