Because I have the same extremly strange and illogical problem:
"CMD run as Administrator" as you suggest lets me start the spooler but
with the next print job the "spooler does not work no solution ready"
And now hold your breath:
I moved to a bigger system drive recently, did the cloning with
"Acronis True Image 10 full version".
After the cloning everything worked fine until yesterday afternoon when
suddenly the spooler pains began out of nowhere.
So I swithed back to the old (slow) harddrive where everything works
fine still and I can print.
I created a sector-by-sector-image of that drive and reloaded it onto
the fast drive.
Does not print.
Also the infamous 2007 Microsoft knowledge base article ("delete
Acrobat Professional 8.1.x and all printers by hand in safe mode...")
does not help a bit.
No piece of non-working software can technically be in a sector by
sector image of a drive that works just fine.
The reason must lie somewhere outside the box.
I have to switch back to the old drive until a solution is provided by
whoever is responsible for the error.
