Restarting the print spooler didn't fix the issue? Or you were unable to
restart the print spooler?

What do your event logs show?

Re: Need Help : Problem Adding Printer
Did you go to the Printer's manufacturer's website and download a vista
compatible Driver, if they have written one for vista?

Are you trying to install the driver from the original disk that you ran
when you installed the printer on XP? ?It won't work.

If they do not have vista driver for the printer, get a new printer.

RE: Need Help : Problem Adding Printer
I am having the same issue after an upgrade from XP to Vista. I can start
the print spooler but as soon as I try to add a printer, it kills the spooler
and I am stuck. I've seen several links about cleaning the registry and such
but these have not worked for me. There are messages that are written to the
event log as well when this happens.
