This is usually caused by invalid printer drivers left on a computer.

Go into "Printers and Faxes" delete all printers which no longer exist by right click --> delete

This should solve the problem

Printer spooler service not running


The spooler is not on your printer it is in the Windows folder on your computer and is used to hold documents whilst preparing to print.
Normally this service is set to start automatically and there are a number of reasons why it may of stopped but try this:
Right click on "Computer" in your Menu and then left click on "Manage".
In the page that appears click "Services and applications" and Click "Services"
Navigate down to "Print Spooler" and double click on that line.
A box should appear showing properties of the Spooler.
It should show
"Startup Type = Automatic"
"Service Status = Running"
If neither of these are true then change the Startup type to Automatic
and click on the "Start Button"
The service will then either start or tell you why it cannot start.

Spooling error


What make and model printer ?
There are a variety of reasons why a printer may feed a blank page through. This is, in some cases, an error. In other cases though it is a mistake in the page count or a simple matter of the printer trying to maintain itself.
Maintenance If a user has just loaded new paper into the printer or if an error message has recently been cleared the printer may run a blank page through.
Usually this is to make sure that the print path is now clear and that the next sheet it positioned correctly for printing.
Page Count
When a document is edited there is sometimes a blank sheet left at the end of the document. So, for example, if a 10 page document is edited down to nine pages, the computer and printer still sometimes read it as a 10-page document when a user hits the print key.
Page Separator
In some cases where a large number of documents are being printed, users may set a blank page separator.
This puts a blank page between copies of a document to show where one ends and the next begins.
A quick look at the printer's settings or control panel will tell you if this option has been turned on.
Fix a Printer Spool Error
When you send a job to your local or network printer, the print spooler is what keeps track of that job's location in the queue.
If the print spooler is not running, your job will not be able to reach the printer, so it is important to know how to resolve print spooler errors when they occur.

Click on the "Start" button and choose "Control Panel" from the menu.
Double-click the "Printers and Faxes" icon and locate your printer.
Double-click on the printer to get the list of jobs in the queue.
If you see any jobs in an error status, right-click on those jobs and choose "Cancel" from the menu.

Close the "Printers and Faxes" window and double-click on the "Administrative Tools" icon. Choose "Services" from the menu.
Scroll through the list until you see "Print Spooler," then right-click and choose "Start" from the drop-down list.
This restarts your print spooler and allow your jobs to print.
Right-click on "Print Spooler" again and choose "Properties" from the menu.
Go to the "Startup" option and set it to "Automatic."
This ensures that the print spooler starts each time your computer does.
