    Tries to see if the following services have been started:
    Performance and Maintenance
    Administrative Tools

    Go to Remote Procedure Call (RPC) and check that it is starting automatically
    Go to Print Spooler and make sure it is in autostart

    Finally properties in Print Spooler, you should have another dependency in addition to that called "Procedure Call (RPC)": check that the service is also starting automatically

    As well you restart your PC and check whether it was revived by typing services.msc? Check the startup type, manual or automatic (normally this option), you can by right-clicking the reboots to see if it starts. Your PC is safe? Otherwise you can try a Windows repair. If you are certain that you have cleaned your pc is a repair of your system, or even or make your XP CD in your drive and start performing typing: sfc / scannow. This will inspect your system files and reinstall corrupted ones (often works very well).
    On this link you will find the official list from Microsoft for all services (it can vary):
    Dependence probably just a wrong application removed printer ... So give us your Windows (XP Home, Pro, Sp2). and the brand of your printer. If not dependence, is in the (. Msc), you should see PRC. Here is the manip Microsoft:

    1. Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, then click OK.
    2. In Registry Editor, locate the registry subkey and then click the following: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ Spooler
    3. Right-click on the value DependOnService, and then click Edit.
    4. In the Value data, delete the event described in the "Symptoms" section.
