Hi Usually your printer spools are located in your printer properties. Have you tried deleting or uninstall the printer completly and reinstall. I'm wondering if maybe the printer drivers have been effected?.

I am facing printer spooling service not running problem even meny time I restar service auto close.


Hi,

I had similar experience with the print spooling service crashing everytime I restarted. I discovered there was a pending print job in bullzip pdf printer that refuses to delete. So I uninstalled the pdf printer and restarted the pc. Kindly do the following:

1) Go to your printers and faxes and Check if there are pending jobs that have not yet printed out.
2) If there are pending print jobs, try to cancel them.
3) If they wont delete, try restarting the PC.
4) If after restarting the PC, the print job is still there, try uninstall the printer or delete the printer.
5) Re-install the printer.

Printer Spoiler problem


<p><br />If the Print Spooler service fails when printing or when Windows starts or it can not be restarted, the usual reason is that one or more printer drivers is defective. The simplest way to resolve this is to remove all the drivers and reinstall them again.<br /> <p><br />If the Print Spooler service is not running, the Printers and Faxes folder will be empty and you can not use it to remove (or add) printers or printer drivers. <br /> <p><br /><b>Resolution:</b><br /> <p> <br /> <p><b>Windows XP:</b><br /> <br /> <p>If the Print Spooler service is operational:<br /> <p>1.<span> </span><span>Open the <b>Printers and Faxes</b> folder, Start-&gt;Printers and Faxes.</span><br /> <p>2.<span> </span><span>Delete all of the <span>printers</span></span> <br /> <p>3.<span> </span><span>Click <b>File</b>, Server Properties</span> <br /> <p>4.<span> </span><span>Select the <b>Drivers</b> tab</span> <br /> <p>5.<span> </span><span>For each entry:</span> <br /> <p>a.<span> </span><span>Select the entry</span> <br /> <p>b.<span> </span><span>Click Remove</span> <br /> <p>If the Print Spooler service is not operational:<br /> <p>6.<span> </span><span>Open regedit Start-&gt;Run and type regedit.</span> <br /> <p>7.<span> </span><span>navigate to <b>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers</b></span> <span>Under this key, there will be the keys Version-2 and Version-3 (one or the other of these may be absent - not a problem) the sub-keys under these contain the printer driver configuration information.

Printer not printing, only a page of a 2 page article.


you did not stated what computer and what operating system, telepathy do not work very well...

i assume that printer is connected via wireless? and you operate some flavour of windows?

if that is the case, please follow procedure below:

1. open notepad
2. type exactly lines below:

net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.shd
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\*.spl
net start spooler

3. save as on desktop: DeletePrintJobs.cmd (do not delete it after! you may need it in years to come!)
4. click on it with right mouse button and then left mouse button and run as an administrator, this commands will delete all spooling jobs for the printers, regardless of the brand.
5. reboot your computer

if this did not work, then follow procedure below, this is true towards usb as well as wireless:

1. switch off printer and disconnect power cord to it
2. remove all drivers for the printer
3. run procedure from above then after restart
4. use ccleaner and clean your computer as well as registry
5. re-install printer using newest drivers appriopriate for your operating system, be it 32bit or 64bit as this is most common cause of this printer mis-behaviour
6. re-connect the printer

re-examine your wireless settings and set it as follows:
1. download and update from router manufacturer your firmware for your router, model and version
2. set SSID broadcast, change if you want to
3. set security to "WPA Personal", "WPA-PSK (TKIP)
4. set password, it need to be at least 12 characters (mixed!) long, do not use dictionary or common words!
5. set mode to "b" and "g", or if available on all your devices "n"
6. set channel to 1 or 6 or 11, these are most clear channels for most devices
7. disable/skip MAC address filtering
8. keep DHCP settings
9. save all changes
10. reboot router after changes, it will take up to 2 min
11. switch off all systems
12. re-power everything after 20sec
13. re-establish all connections

this procedure should keep your wireless connection at optimum and life relatively easy.

Not that it is a help for your problem but the file name should be PSW_RE.DLL - a dot belongs before the '.DLL'

If you haven't tried it yet, delete the printer from the 'Printers and Faxes' folder in the Control Panel, make sure the printer is connected and turned on, then reboot the computer.

This will force Windows to reinstall drivers for it and should return functions.

Caught in spool, can not cancel or print


Been working on my computer for two hours on this problem!
i could not cancel what was in the spool
do this
If you are on Vista Home Premium, go through the following steps to clear "deleted" print jobs from the print queue.

1) Go to Control Panel
2) Select System and Maintenance
3) Select Administrative Tools
4) Double-click on Services
5) In the list of services, scroll down until you find one called "Print Spooler"
6) Right-click on "Print Spooler" and select "Restart"
7) The "deleted" jobs will disappear and any queued jobs in your print queue will print

Hope this helps. I figured it out on my own without any assistance from the paid professionals
