Cannot Print or install driver

For not apparent reason I suddenly cannot print. When I look at installed printers it is blank. When I try to install a new printer I am told the spooler is not running. I went through troubleshooting and looked at the print spooler service and see it is not running. I click it to run and it stays for about 2 seconds and clicks off again. I looked at the registry and the proper entries are there for the spooler.

any ideas?

I would suggest running a system restore to an earlier time than the issue occured.  That may be a quick fix.  If try adding the printer manually through the add printer wizard.  Let me know how that goes.
