The print spooler service is not running.

Reinstall the printer drivers will shore it up quickly the spooler has to do with the printer so do that and you should be fine.

Click on "Start, Run", type "services.msc"

On the right side of the services window, scroll down to "Print Spooler". Double-click it.

If startup type is "disabled", click the drop-down and set to "Automatic" and then click "Start". If already on automatic, click "Stop" to stop the service. Once stopped, click "Start" to restart the service.

Reboot and try again :)

Hope this helps - remember to rate!
