I have recently upgraded to Windows 7 and have not been able to add a printer because I get the message "local print spooler service is not working". If I shut down the pc and restart this doesn't do anything. How do I kick start the print spooler service?
Thanks

Enable the service

In the Run window execute the command:
net start spooler

If it solve the issue then:
In the Run window execute the command:
services
in the services windows look for "print spooler"
and change the startup type to Automatic.
