Print Spooler Server not running error

    When I try to install a new printer, I get a message
    of "Operation cannot be completed" & when I check the
    print server properties, I get the message "Server
    properties cannot be viewed. The print spooler service is
    not running."

    Any ideas anyone? Please e-mail me with ideas at


    Thanks in advance.

  2. Have you tried starting the Spooler?

    From a command prompt, type:

    net start spooler

    (and hit enter)

    It is perfectly useless to know the right answer to the wrong question.
