Please try the following to start the service again:

1) Click on START, right click MY COMPUTER, left click MANAGE.
2) On the left column, double-left click SERVICES AND APPLICATIONS, then click SERVICES.
3) Locate and highlight the PRINT SPOOLER on the list of Services.
4) Click START THE SERVICE.

If errors occur and the service cannot be started, there is another issue within the operating system itself.
Please contact MICROSOFT or your computer vendor for support.
Once the service is started and operating normally, you will be able to access printer properties, uninstall/reinstall or send a document to the printer.

Pls rate it as Fixya if it helps, thanks!!

It could be due to the print spooler service on your computer. Please follow the steps below on how to clear the print queue and enable the print spooler service.

  1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET STOP SPOOLER (this will stop the print spooler service)
  2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.
  3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)
Try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.

Local Print Spooler Service is not runing.


This means tha Print Spooler service is disabled. Click COMPUTER or MY COMPUTER icon, then click Manage. Expand the Services and Applications, then click Services. Scroll down to look for the Print Spooler service, double-click it, change its STARTUP type to automatic and then click the option to start the service. Once done, try printing again. Good luck.

Printing preferences cannot be displayed. The print spooler service is not running. (What does that mean? I cannot print anything from all 3 of my computers at work can you please HELP ME! )


If you are getting this problem to a Network Printer then you should check the Firewall of Server PC or The PC to which Printer is Directly Conncted, Disable Firewall of that system and check the Properties again on remote pc on which you are getting this message, in miy case norton internet security was blocking printer to all my network pc and i was getting same error. but when i set the firewall to shared mode (its only in NIS) all pc started to print normally.... :)

Print spooler problem cannot delete printer jobs


Hi there
You can try see if this may do it.

Go to Start / Run and type in "services.msc" without quotation marks, then press Enter or click OK.

In the window that opens (Services) look for "Print Spooler" on the right

Right-click "Print Spooler" and select "Properties".

Click on the "Recovery" tab and change all 3 drop-down boxes to "Restart The Service".

Make sure the 2 text boxes underneath say "1" in them.

Click Ok until you are back at the Services window, close it and you're good to go.

Go back into the properties of the "Print Spooler" tab and be sure to click Start to restart the Print Spooler service and it will restart the service immediately.

The Print spooler depends on the Remote Procedure Call (RPC) service. Is this service disabled? Go to services.msc look for RPC. Check state: Automatic

Please come back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one so I will keep on helping.
