Windows can't open add printer. The local print spooler service is not
running. Please restart the spooler or restart the machine.

Re: print spooler service not running
Does anyone know how to fix this problem. I restart the print spooler and
still get the error message "Windows can't open Add Printer. The local print
spooler service is not running. Please restart the spooler or restart the
machine. My printer is gone from the printers folder.

Re: print spooler service not running
The spooler crashing is nearly always due to bad/corrupted printer drivers.

I'd disconnect any and all connected printers, and uninstall them.

Then download the new printer drivers from the manufacturers' website(s) and
install, only reconnecting the printer(s) when the software tells you to do
so.
