Xp to Vista Upgrade - Printer not working

I recently upgraded a Fujitsu Scenic PC from XP to Vista Business. All is well apart from printing. I cannot install the Vista drivers for my Epson Sylus Photo R240. Reading several blogs it appears the XP to Vista upgrade corrupts the XP drivers or looses the location of the XP drivers but them will not allow the new ones to be installed. The symptoms are that if I try and Add a Printer I get a nessage saying the spooler is not running. If I start the spooler and try and add i get another error. Everything I have tried has failed so far. Any ideas?
