print spooler not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Windows 7, my printer was fine until I ran Security essentials & Malware scan in safe mode. Now I get the message that the local print spooler service is not running. I have read many of the help answers & followed the advice, When I right click on the spooler & go to properties the status type on the general tab is automatic, service status is stopped. The problem I have is the fact all the areas that you say to click on are greyed out on both the general & recovery tab & they aren't working. I am not real good at working on these types of issues. I would appreciate any help that anyone can offer. Thank you.
