Print Spooler Service has stopped

I know there are numerous threads about spooler errors but I could not
find one that would fix my problem. Printer: Canon Pixma MP450. OS:
Vista Home Premium 64 bit. Recently jumped from an AMD 754 to Intel 775
Quad core. Same OS, just reinstalled and formatted HD. No issues under
754 but having this problem along with others now.

Done the following.

- Downloaded Canon's 64 bit driver again but won't install because of
the "Print Spooler service had stopped working".
- Done the right click, manage on Computer to stop and restart the
service. No luck.
- Removed the printer from device manager (sees it, just no driver).
- Contacted Canon and tried their method of stopping drivers and
service on start up using msconfig. Didn't work either.
- Done disk clean ups, defrags, ccleaner, virus scans, regedits, etc.
No luck.
- Tried to add new printer but get same error as #1.I know this isn't a driver issue because it worked a week ago on my old
PC. OS is the same but it's now using new hardware. Any help is
appreciated since I've been trying for about 4 days now.

Re: Print Spooler Service has stopped
Does Canon have an uninstall utility?

Also, did you do Step 4 at:

Re: Print Spooler Service has stopped

Irondog,

It is frustrating but I actually like the 64 bit, even with the other
problems. I've found a lot of other small problems (can't set up
parental controls, some UAC setting issues, etc) and think I might try
to reinstall. None of the Nvidia control panel software works and plus
a lot of the hotfixes in my history are "failures". Like I said before,
everything worked 100% perfect 2 weeks ago. I'm going to keep searching
because I'd rather not reinstall Vista again.

Re: Print Spooler Service has stopped
I have been looking all over the internet for possible solutions and have
come up with "0" for the first time in my life i am completely stumped. The
one thing that I have not tried is going back to Vista home version. That
realy was the most stable my computer has been for a long time. But what a
hater, An Irondog with his tail between his legs. I will not give up though.
Good luck. If you everwant to contact directly I @ irondoging@gmail.com or
irondog433@cox.net Good luck.

Re: Print Spooler Service has stopped

I'm stumped for the first time as well. I'm seriously considering a
fresh install. For some reason my PC thinks it went through some major
hardware changes and informed me I need to activate Vista again. Since
I have to do that I'm thinking about trying it again. I also noted
there are 40 updates that failed and won't install. Only thing I did
was update my MOBO bios in a vain attempt of correcting this and other
issues.
