Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
WinXP SP2 - wirelessly networked - System Restore unhelpful - all other computers on network can print.
START-->Printers and Faxes - Printers list is blank
Clicked "Add Printer" - Error returned "Print Spooler Service is not running"
START-->Admin Tools-->Services - Started Spooler service
Printer list still blank - Add Printer task failed - Print Spooler Service has stopped running again.
It will not stay running. Something is stopping it, but I have NO idea what it could be.
Ran cleansp.exe from Windows Resource Kit. No change.

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 Data Execution Prevention
Select Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select
Paste this in to the file name box of the window that opens:
Select OK when you receive the warning
After doing that , follow my steps again for enabling the print spooler , let me know how that works

hi, friend. You need to re install your Printer software CD because the program corrupted. thats the only way to solve that.

Delete the printer icon, restart your workstation to see if the error is gone. If so, reinstall the printer driver and set up the printer for your wireless connection.
