Print spooler is a program that runs in the background in your computer.
To start, stop or restart the program follow these steps:
What is the status of the service? is it started? stoped? Disabled?
If the service is stoped right click on it and select Start.
If the service is disabled right click on it and select properties then change the start up mode to automatic, then click on start. Apply and OK
the service should be started and you should be able to print again.

ok, so for this, always had an issue with this one,
so, what i did is started the spooler, the way to do this is you have to go into control panel>>>admin. tools>>> services>>>printer spooler>>> and then you have a blue icon on your left where you have to click on the button that says start the spooler, now i recommend you minimize this window,
next step is that you add the printer through the add a printer wizard in most cases the printer should already have the basic driver installed into the computer. and way to add it to to start the add a wizard, click on add a port make sure the box where it reads plug in play is unchecked, so the only icon you have checked is the local port, next you choose the port that is usb001 from here you choose hp>>> then laserjet 1020, let the printer driver install and finally your done.

The issue is with the print spooler. If the operating system is XP then click on start >> run >> type services.msc >> the services window opens, now locate the print spooler and right click on it and select stop(if it is started) then again right click on it and then click on start. Now the spooler service will start, then try installing the all-in-one software.

I'm on windows XP OS
I am having a similar problem and have been online all night needing a solution FAST.
I used to have a lexmark printer/drivers, which I hear cause the 1068 error.
I removed all those drivers.
In the "Services" window, I goto "Print Spooler"
If I attempt to start the service I get "Error 1068: The depedancy service or group failed to start"
Under "Print Spooler" properties / Dependancies Tab - upon clicking I get an error:
<Null>: No Such Interface Supported
From what I can see, I need a default RPC dependancy to be in there? I've set all the configurations to "Automatic" and recoverys to "Restart the Service"
I get nothing.
I also need to mention, I occasionally get an error upon starting windows XP, which says something along the lines of system32/services.exe error; restarting System in 1:00 (then it counts down and shuts off PC)
I really need this printer working tonight.
Thanks in advance.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
