I have run into the problem of a missing windows system file - spoolsv.exe. I tried to restart the Print Spooler under Control Panel/Administrative Services/Services so that I could use my printer. It told me that spoolsv.exe was missing. My operating system is Windows 2000 Service Pack 4. Could someone help me locate the spoolsv file over the Internet? I would prefer not to have to reinstall my operating system, because everything other than printer is working fine. In fact, I would prefer to spend a couple of weeks trying to procure this file somewhere in order to avoid a lengthy and painful Windows re-installation.
Actually I did a search and found a spoolsv.exe in a backup folder for a Win2000/Service Pack 4 Installation. I restarted the print spooler and was able to print right after. Thank you for your help, ozrom1e. (Problem Resolved)
