Greetings all!

All of a sudden I can not print anymore. My hp printer and my acrobat printer/distiller are gone.

I have tried to open a Command Window and type in net start spooler. It tells me that print spooler service is starting and that it was started successfully. Now I go back to CP and to Printers and it gives me the same error!

I have also check in the computer management area and the setting is automatic for the spooler.

I have also used the windows resource tool kit to help solve the problem and it too has failed.

I need help!

Have you looked in Windows Event Viewer.

There should be some errors logged in there about this. Post them back.
