    Hi,
    please help me
    I have a windows XP Proffesional
    intenet explorer 8 ( I think )
    I have had viruses on my computer, but they are all fixed by now,
    but it knocked out my printer,
    so that my computer does not see my printer installed
    I have a HP laserjet printer 1100
    and when I tried to go to control panel printers and faxes,
    add a printer it does not see it,
    even though I installed my HP drivers
    error message says
    " operation could not be completed,
    the print spooler service is not runing "
    even though I installed the drivers,

    please advise,
    thanks
    Sigmund
