"Error 1068 Could not start the Printer Spooler on local Computer"
I've recently had a problem with my printer, when I try to print something, it says I don't have one installed.
I've tried to reinstall my printer, but when I try to uninstall it, it comes up with the error message
"Processing cannot be continued because the printer spooler service has been stopped. Restart the system to start the printer spooler service, then try again"
My Printer Spooler is definity at Automatic, because I already phoned them and my settings seemed to be correct.
However, when i try to start the printer spooler the error message of:
"Error 1068 Could not start the Printer Spooler on local Computer" comes up.
will someone try help me resolve my problem?

So I bought a new hp printer thinking it may be compatable, but I am still unable to install. still same spooler errors. Spent hours online with chat techs running through every possible fix. Unable to get the spooler running.

Check for other Service Dependencies
A 1068 is a service dependency error. Print Spooler can't start because it thinks a service it depends on is not running.
Go into services and check its dependencies, it should just be the RPC service, which you shouldn't be able to stop, check that RPC is running
Double click print spooler and click the dependencies tab. See if there are any other dependencies set besides rpc. If so you will want to find them in services and make sure they are set to automatic and are running (will probably need to start them).
Then try to start "Print Spooler" service, should work. May need to reinstall printer drivers then.
HI, right click on my computer -> select manage -> one should be
services and something (or something like that) open that and go to
services -> find the printer spool service and right click on it
-> click on properties -> in the printer spool service properites
click the "Start" button and also under a drop down menu change it from
"Disabled" to "Automatic".... This is what you did right ?
Log in to Administrator account and try it there. If that doesn't work then install a fresh copy of Windows Xp. It should work now. Thank you.
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.
This is JISHKUMAR, U need to click on dependencies tab.this u will get it when u double click on print spooler.just look which are the services under dependencies..whatever services you will find just go to that services and start them and then start print spooler service. this will 101% solve your problem
Above is the Canon site with the newest drivers available. Download them and install them. First "delete" the printer from print properties. Unplug the printer from the wall for a few minutes and shutdown the computer. Plug the printer in and reboot the machine. Install the new drivers. You are in a loop. definition of LOOP: see LOOP.
Let me know what happens.
