By default Windows NT server adds an entry in the event log for every print job occuring on the spooler. This can quickly fill up the event log with redundent information.
To disable this function, change the DWORD value for EventLog to "0".

Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Providers]
Value Name: EventLog
Data Type: REG_DWORD
Data: (0 = disable)
