Where i could see the printer spooler?

I open the run command you can type: net start spooler
(You will get a message that says the print spooler service has started)
If you still have issues open the run command and type: services.msc
it will display a list, where you can find print spooler.

From there you can right-click on it and set it so it is started and runs automatically.

Hello, I have problem like this - Process cannot continue because the Print Spooler service has been stopped. Restart the computer to start the Print Spooler & try again. I mean, I cant even install it...

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.

My print spooler is not running

If you are getting a message that your print spooler service is not running, possibly you have the print spooler service turned off.

To start the print spooler service in XP:

Click on Start
Click on Run
Type "services.msc" and hit Enter or press OK
In the services window look for "print spooler service"

Click on the Print spooler and on the top left corner Click on "Start"

Reboot the computer. You should be able to print now.

Please get back for any further assistance.

It's not a printer problem, but you may need to delete and re-install your printer driver on your computer to resolve the spooler problem.

I had the same issue!! I called up Canon Australia on 13 13 83.

The gentleman explained that even thought it was called Print Spooler, it was my laptop.

Start Menu > Run > services.msc

Long list of items > scroll down to Print Spooler




if it's not, click "Start" > then Apply

no need to reboot - try installing the drivers now.

Good luck! If this doesn't work, call Canon tech support in your country :)

Printer Spooler Service turns off when I try to print

Un-install the printer and it's associated software via the Control Panel of your Windows PC.

Reboot your computer with the printer turned off and the USB cable unplugged.

Go to the Canoin web site and download the latest version of the driver for your operating system.

Run the driver install following the instructions in the install wizard.

Once the wizard is done, you should be OK again. If not, reboot and test the printer again. If it is still not working properly then you probably have a Windows problem and not a printer problem
