Can't start print spooler

I upgraded to Windows XP SP2 and lost all my printers in the Printers & Fax folder. When trying to add my printer(HP All-In-One 5510) using the Add Printer Wizard, i had a error "Print Spooler not running"

Checked the Services folder and Print Spooler was not running but set to automatic in the Services folder.
I tried net start spooler and got a "system error 2 has occured - The system cannot find the file specified."
Have tried most things suggested on this forum but no luck starting that print spooler and hence can't progress. Any suggestions? Afraid i'm not a technical user. Thanks in advance.
