Error 2 spoolsv.exe is missing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Im having a problem with my windows vista ultimate which i cant add any printers (local or network) because i cant start spool service, i got the message:

    Windows could not start the Print Spooler service on Local Computer.

    Error 2: The system cannot find the file specified.


    The message is right... i dont have the file %systemroot%\system32\spoolsv.exe


    After i run a scan i got these messages:
