    How do I get the print spooler to run long enough for me to install this
    printer. The printer is compatable with Windows XP. I can start it 100
    times and it won't stay on. The spooler is set to automatic. When I try to
    install the printer, the error message says RPC Server is unavailable. So I
    re-checked the settings for that and that is running and staying running but
    I still have the problem.
