Go into your services applet and look at the dependencies of "Print Spooler" and see what is defined there..

open up services:

click on start>run and type in the following:

services.msc

scroll down to Remote Procedure Call (not RPC Locator)

Is that service runnning? If not, click on start, and change the startup type to automatic. Then try to start the print spooler.
