Printer instalation problem.. do I need to take this to a technician or is it something easily fixed.on trying to re install printer...it keeps coming up with a box saying print spooler service not working.
I cannot locate the file...in the spool file,it appears to be empty..am having other problems with the computer too...but currently this one is the most annoying...

xp? if so - right click my computer, choose manage, find services and applications, expand services, find print spooler, right click on it, properties, startup type, auto.

in your 'run' box type 'services.msc. without the quote marks. if you have no run box press and hold the winkey, then press the r key.

Sorry to take so long to respond...Im so annoyed with my computer...
Ive tried to do as you suggested but cannot get it to do anything....
I also cannot activate system restore and get a variety of error messages ...SO..Im gonna book it in to see the computer doctorbefore it goes for a flight through the window...

You have a corrupt registry you will need to reinstall the spoolersrv registry entry.
