I am also having the print spooler error, I can not add a printer. The error "Operation could not be completed. The print spooler service is not running." Windows XP OS.
I have run the services, started the print spooler and continue to get the error. Is there a fix? I am on my Compaq V5201US laptop and would like to connect to my HP PSC1610 printer through my wireless network. Tried to hard connect other printers and no luck.
