Printer spooler service not running

This message appeared after downloading the driver for my HP 1018 printer: "Operation could not be completed (error 0x000006va). The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine." Restarting the printer did not help. How do I solve this print spooler issue?

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.

SOURCE: Printing Error

Try this:

1. Power off the printer
2. After re-boot: click start, control panel, printers & faxes and delete the printer.
3. Re-install the printer with the original driver disc.
There are many suggested solutions to spool problems but try this first. If this does not work we'll go to the other solutions.

Icon has disappeared and error says printer spooler not running


This is because your spooler service has stopped on the PC.
If you have Win XP, click on start and click on Run.
Type services.msc and click Ok.
From the list, scroll down to Print Spooler.
Right click on this and click on Start or Restart.
Check if you have icon back or not.

Cannot print on shared printer


I had the same problem with HP 1018 printer, when I had two computers connected to a domain and had Windows XP SP3 on them and when I shared the printer on one of them - I could only print from the network if the user belonged to the Local Administrators group on the host/server computer. Once the network user is removed from Administrators - the print jobs are stuck in print queue. I used the "HP LaserJet Host Based Print Driver Package" that is on HP web site for HP laserjet 1018 printer.
Then I tried to use a different driver for that printer and was successful with driver for HP LaserJet 1020. After forcing that printer to use the 1020 drivers, the regular users were able to print to that printer.
