I can definitly help you out....it may take a few steps to narrow down this issue..so don't get frustrated! :-)

First lets start off by trying this:

Go to System Properties>Advanced

Select Performance>Settings

Select Data Execution Prevention

Select Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select
Click Add

Paste this in to the file name box of the window that opens:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\spoolsv.exe

Select Open

Select OK when you receive the warning

Select Apply


After doing that , follow my steps again for enabling the print spooler , let me know how that works

    Also another thing , go into the services.msc again, scroll down to the service named " Remote Procedure Call " , right click on it and restart it.....then goto the print spooler and try to restart it......



    If none of this works there is another solution , I will just be waiting on you for a response about these 2 suggestions , I don't want to pound you with too much tech literature :-)

HP print spooler problem and error 1068. Want my printer back!!!


hi! Print Spooler is actually a service for your Operating system-
Try this

Click on start and click on run
in the open box type in services.msc and your services local window should open, scroll down and look for print spooler, highlight it and do a right click and on the dropdown menu left click on stop and it will go to a process of stopping the service and then right click back and click on start. if you get an error message about print spooling or spooler, then that means you have a problem with the operating system. call or go to microsoft help and support online in that case. and RPC server unavailable error has something to do with a network printer. but i believe you setup the printer locally.
