print spooler error 12 access code invalid

On my windows server 2000, with all the latest service packs and patches, i tried to restart the print spooler service and now it stops on this error 12 invalid access code error.  I have only been able to find some info referring to terminal server and 2000 with this error.  I am not running terminal services on this server.  I need to get this spooler up and rebooting at this time is not an option.  ANy ideas?


thanks.
