Printer spool service!

greyway21, Aug 10, 3:38am
Hi,
All of a sudden printer will not work. Says "no printer connected", "do you want to install a printer" then click "yes" and this message comes up "no printer spool service"
Any idea how to correct this please.

Reboot everything.

Run services.msc (in a cmd prompt). Set the spooler service to automatic/started. Or reboot.

It works! Did as you suggested a couple of timesr.g. and nothing changed. Then changed it manual.nothing, then changed it back. Virus dec came up with something, cleaned that, changed setting to automatic, then bingo, printer operating again.Thanks for your help.
