    well, it depends on Remote Procedure Call(RPC) service, and it shouldn't be turned off or marked for deletion.
    may be there is some other corruption, try cleaning your printer drivers and print jobs, and then reset the spooler service as described here;

    What does your dependencies say on the Print Spooler service?  Go to Start, Run, type services.msc and hit Enter.  Right-click Print Spooler service, Properties, Dependencies tab, top box.

Click in the Value data area of the Edit Multi-String dialog to turn off the selection (highlighting).  Delete the <Service Name> line. This normally leaves just the RPCSS line, but you may of other services listed. Press OK and close Regedit.exe. Shutdown and restart Windows XP.
