spoolsv wont keep runing, Win XP Pro
Posted on 2007-03-25
I have had a virus problem which is now sorted. However, I have lost my printers and am unable to "add printer" I receive " Print spooler service not running. I have read through the PAQ's and have followed the instructions regarding deleting all printers and running the clean serv tool from the MS knowledge base. I can start the print spooler from either run, net start spooler or from administrative tools.
Each time I start it stops almost immediately. I have tried copying spoolserv.exe from another (good) computer but still it will not run and stay running.
Any help greatly received, thanks.
