What makes you think the print spooler is not working? Is it because you get a message saying that it is not working or is it because you cannot print?

If you can stop and start the print spooler that would indicate to me that the spooler is running and you have a different problem. It is probably a corrupt print job, to fix this do the following.

1) stop the spooler
2) go to My computer
3) select the C drive
4) select the windows folder
5) select the system32 folder
6) select the spool folder
7) select the printers folder
8) delete everything in the printers folder
9) restart the spooler

Spooler service not running

Press the windows key on your keyboard and R at the same time (windows key is between ctrl and alt and has a flag on it usually)

In the run menu type services.msc
In the services menu, scroll down and find print spooler on the right hand pane.

Right click the print spooler service and click start. If the service wont start due to a dependancy uninstall any old lexmark printer software you had (Unless you are still using a lexmark printer)

Hope this helps.

Cannot delete pending print job


Go to START then click on RUN, type services.msc and look for Print Spooler. Stop the service and start it again. That should clear the pending print job queue.

Hope this helps.

I am facing printer spooling service not running problem even meny time I restar service auto close.


I had similar experience with the print spooling service crashing everytime I restarted. I discovered there was a pending print job in bullzip pdf printer that refuses to delete. So I uninstalled the pdf printer and restarted the pc. Kindly do the following:

1) Go to your printers and faxes and Check if there are pending jobs that have not yet printed out.
2) If there are pending print jobs, try to cancel them.
3) If they wont delete, try restarting the PC.
4) If after restarting the PC, the print job is still there, try uninstall the printer or delete the printer.
5) Re-install the printer.

click start-->run -->type services.msc--> u would see the list of services ---> find "print spooler " ...make sure it is "started " ..or the like possiblity is that u may have installed the printer drivers that came along for xp. so , disable "lexbec " under services list . ........and reinstall/ dowload the vista drivers from your printer vendor site .
