Ok I have a print spooler issue. Mine says print spooler service is stopped and needs to be running for installation to continue. How do I fix this? I've looked at a few sites and they've suggested going in through the control panel into admin tools, and then finally into services. Well in services there is not one for print spooler so that doesn't work. I also tried the start menu, going to run, and typing net start spooler. That doesn't work and nothing shows up in that black box. I've restarted the remote procedure call like that was suggested. Nothing works so far.
Note: I found this one on the site somewhere and it's also what I'm experiencing, but I don't know how to correct a driver problem as one person suggested.
When trying to add a printer under "Printers and Faxes", I get this error:
"Operation could not be completed. The print spooler service is not
I also get an error when trying to access the server properties:
"Server properties cannot be viewed. The print spooler service is not
Went to the Print spooler service and restarted it and the RPC dependent
service with no luck. The service stops as soon as I try to add the printer.
Any suggestions? Thanks.
