Restart the spooler by doing the following:
a. Click Start > Run, and on the entry field, type in "net stop spooler".
b. Hit Ok.
c. Click Start > Run, and on the entry field, type in "net start spooler".
d. Hit Ok.

You can pm me for remote assistance for free.

Can't reinstall printer- ''print spooler is not working''


If you have the windows disk for it , Save everything important to disks.  Put WIndows  disk into machine and tell it to install. It will find you version and ask if you wish to repair it, Say yes.   If you have Xp pro just "Restore" computer to the date before the problem started. If you have neither one. Save you work and then reinstall everything using your backup disks.

I cant get the Adobe Acrobat Pro 7.0 PDF Printer to work. It comes up with an warning 20225 code; setup was unable to create a new item.


Hi,
I got 2 possible solutions:

Solution 1: Use a supported installation.
-- If you install Acrobat (Professional or Standard) on a 64-bit operating system, you may see this error. Install Acrobat on a 32-bit operating system.


-- If you install Acrobat to a shared network disk instead of a local hard disk, the Adobe PDF printer is not installed. Install Acrobat on a local hard disk.


-- If you install Acrobat to a directory with a path that contains extended ASCII or double-byte characters, English installations will display the error message. Install to a path that does not contain extended ASCII or double-byte characters.


Solution 2: Ensure that the Print Spooler process is running and set to Automatic, and then repair Acrobat.
1. Select Start > Settings > Control Panel.


2. Double-click Administrative Tools and then double-click Services.


3. Locate the service Print Spooler.


4. If the Startup Type is not Automatic, set it to Automatic:
a. Right-click the Print Spooler.
b. Choose Properties.
c. Choose the General tab.
d. Choose Automatic in the Startup Type menu.
e. Click OK.


5. If the Print Spooler service is not running, then start it.
a. Right-click the Print Spooler line.
b. Select Start from the menu.


6. Start Acrobat, and choose Help > Detect And Repair.


God Luck!!!!
