I have a laptop that is running Windows 10 and has been working fine but for the last couple of days the Print Spooler either doesn't start when Windows 10 boots up or the print spooler server keeps stopping when trying to print.

I have tried the following to resolve the issue but none of them has....
1) Sfc /scannow
2) Chkdsk c: /f /r
3) dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /checkhealth
4) Disk cleanup to remove temp and other unwanted stuff

Any help would be great?
