Try this:

Start the computer in safe mode then delete all the files and the folders in the following two folders: • C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Printers
• C:\Windows\System32\Spool\Drivers\w32x86


Start Registry Editor. To do this, click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK

Locate and expand the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86
View the list of subkeys. There should only be the following subkeys: • Drivers
• Print Processors
delete any other in this list

Locate and then expand the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Monitors
View the list of subkeys. There should only be the following subkeys for the default print monitors: • BJ Language Monitor
• Local Port
• PJL Language Monitor
• Standard TCP/IP Port
• USB Monitor


delete any other in this list then restart your computer.

Good Luck

Can't print. local print spool not working


Try the steps below to clear the print queue and restart your print spooler:

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.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in NET START SPOOLER (this will restart the print spooler service)

4. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.

Start by removing the printer driver(s). Check several times, as some printers hide in lots of places. Once the printer/driver(s) are all gone, try a new installation.

Print spooler


To prevent the spooler from stopping, which is usually caused by invalid printer drivers left on a computer.

Go into "Printers and Faxes" delete all printers which no longer exist by right click --> delete

To restart the spooler :-

click start --> run
type net spooler start click ok
or
click start --> run --> services.msc --> click ok
scroll down to print spooler --> right click on it and select start

Spooler sub system app??


The issue occurs because of a corrupted printer driver installed and because of the Vista OS that keeps updating.

-Open up c:\windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS

-Delete the contents of the directory (not the directory).

-Restart the print spool service. (service.msc)
