PRINT SPOOLER RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    have a printer that won't print all of sudden. When I was called to
    investigate I received this message when trying to start the service
    for the print spooler which is already on automatic(spoolsv.exe).
    "COULD NOT START THE PRINT SPOOLER SERVICE ON LOCAL COMPUTER. ERROR 2.
    THE SYSTEM CANNOT FIND THE FILE SPECIFIED".

    I uninstalled all printer drivers and software and reinstalled but the
    software wouldnt install because of the spooler problem. This is the
    first time I've come across this problem, any ideas? I almost forgot
    that I cleaned up the adware problem then tried again with no luck.

     

    I ran sc query spooler

    Type: 110 win32_own_process (interaction)

    state:1 stopped

    <not_stoppable, not_pausable, ignores_shutdown>

    win32_exit_code: 0 <0x0>

    services_exit_code: 0 <0x0>

    checkpoint: 0x0

    wait_hint:0x0

     

    Anyone have a suggestion?
