Printer Spooler Service Not Workinghave not been able to print since. I had a Canon MP780 printer already installed but the printer portion of it stopped working, though the scanning portion of it still works. I tried to install the Windows 7 drivers for HP Photosmart C4400 but the keep telling me that there is an error with my printer spooler. I have gone into the spooler properties and everything printer spooler service is not running in xp looks set up right but when I try to manually start it I receive the same message. I am just looking for a fix so that I can print.
