Print issues after GAW download - no printer, RPC failed and spooler not running RRS feed

  • Question

  • After downloading Windows XP GAV software, my printer icon is missing.  When I click on add printer I get 'Remote procedure call failed" the first time and "print spooler services not running" the second time.

    I have tried:

    Removing and reinstalling printer software.

    I have ensured that RPC and spooler are running and set to automatic.

    I have searched the kb articles and changed some of the settings under the recovery tab for RPC and spooler to restart service after failures.

    I have deleted and replace the spoolsv.eve file.

    Is anyone else having issues or does anyone have a solution?

    Everything else works fine - except for the system restore which won't restore to a previous point for some reason.
