Disconnect the printer and reboot the computer. Then reboot the computer again with the printer hooked up. Let XP "find" it. You should see a "new hardware wizard". If you don't, go into device manager and check the properties of the printer. make sure it is enabled and that you let XP try to get drivers for it.

Lets get back the spooler service first.
Download the attachement. Unzip the spooler.reg file inside. Double-click on the spooler.reg file to merge it with the registry.
Now follow the steps that Czarina told in Post#2.

Click start, run, type sfc /scannow then press enter to replace the system files, you need the XP CD and get a blue bar, after the bar goes, reboot, then look for spooler, click start, run, type services.msc then press enter
