My printers disappeared, I tried to add them back and ad could not because the print spooler was not running. I tried to manually start the print spooler and could not - the following error recieved

Windows could not start the Print Spooler Service on Local Computer
Error: 1608: The dependency service group failed to start

I tried to roll back my computer running Win 7 to an restore point I know the computer was functioning and still no luck.

Did anyone have a similar experience today with a Windows update? or can shed some light on how to restore the print spooler?
