OFF TOPIC:Printer Spooler RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I just recently lost all printer applications and access to printers, when I try to add a printer Vista comes up with an error and says:  Windows cannot open Add Printer.  The local printer spooler is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine.

    I have Vista Home Premium


    Can any one help me on this.

  • Open start>run>services.msc, scroll down to print spooler, double click, check that startup type is set to automatic, start the print spooler service if necessary.
