Out of resources

I have recently ecountered a strange problem. Suddenly I cannot print from Windows 2000. The printer has been removed(!) and when trying to reinstall it  I get the following message;
"Printer operation cannot continue due to lack of resources. The print subsystem is unavailable."
I have no problem printing in Linux so the problem cannot be the printer.

I have been hardening my system by turning of certain services but I have tried to be restrictive. Also I have a spyware program and I reset the programs that were installed. This did not help the problem.


I hope somebody might have a suggestion of what might be wrong.

thank you

This problem could be  caused by a corrupt spooler dll. just copy the file from another system (i think it's spool.dll, may be wrong) and it should work
