I have Windows server 2012 that is a print server. I have one printer that has a bad drive and I am tryint to delete it. When I try to delete it I get the following error: Printer cannot be removed. The local print spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine.
I restart the print spooler and try to delete again and get the same error. Also if I go into the properties of the printer and goto the advanced page it does not show anything for the driver. If I try to add a driver is shuts down the print spooler.
I wuold like to get rid of this printer so I can create a new printer and deploy it to my users.
Thanks for any help.
