Print Spooler Missing From Services

When adding a printer I get the meesage"Operation could not be completed.
The print spooler service is not running". All resolution on net suggests
going into service and startin printspooler. When I do this I cannot see
print spooler or anything like it listed. Have also tried starting spooler
from a run prompt to no avail.

Try the following,

1. Open the command prompt window and type

sfc /scannow

If prompted for your Windows XP CD then insert the CD. If asked to insert
the Windows XP Service Pack 2 disk and you do not have this disk then follow
these direction on how to solve this problem.

Scannow sfc

2. Download the following to desktop and double-click to import into the
registry.
