Running XP. Suddenly, the computer does not print to a USB connected printer. I get the "Print spooler servivce not running. I have checked the print spooler in the services tab in control panel and ensured it is running automatically. However, this does not change anything. I did a restore to a date when the printer was working. Still nothing. I cannot display printer properties - I get the same error.

Any suggestions?
