RPC Server unavailable for printer

Last night, I received a message that my firewall had blocked lexpps. I searched for that file online, and discovered that I had drivers from a lexmark printer running on my computer. I learned that you can stop them from running by renaming them to .old.
I did this with lexpps, and lexbce.
This morning, when I tried to print, I did not have any printers available. I tried to add my HP 4200, and received a message that said RPC server unavailable. I searched online and discovered that there can be a dependency to the lexbce, and realized that since I had disabled that file, the RPC server was not working. I followed instructions for manually removing the dependency, and it disappeared in Administrative tools/services/printer spooler, but, the RPC server still would not work.
I opened it up and discovered it stopped. I tried restarting it through 1) command start net spooler 2) the interface in the tools window. 3) restarting my computer after setting it to automatic. Nothing worked.
I read that there could be a corrupted driver, so I uninstalled my printer driver and tried to reinstall it, but, it would get stuck when it would tell me that the printer spooler is stopped.
Any ideas?
