All you need to do is just start the print spoole service.

Follow the below steps to solve this issue:
  1. First of all you need to go to System Properties > Advanced
  2. After that select Performance > Settings and then select Data Execution Prevention
  3. Now you need to select Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select
  4. After that click add and then paste this in to the file name box of the window that opens: C:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exe
  5. You need to select Open and then click OK when you receive the warning and then click Apply
