Windows XP/printer spooler

windows xp  

thanks for your help....

This usually works but if not sometimes you just need to uninstall
the software and reinstall it
Go to start - my computer - c drive - Windows folder - system32 folder - spool folder - printers folder. Then delete the contents of the Printers folder.
Close that, then go to Start - Control Panel - Admin tools - Services - Scroll down to "Print Spooler" and open it and click on start.
