Go to Start > Run, and type services.msc. In the Services window, scroll to "Remote Procedure Call" and verify it shows "Started" and "Automatic" (start it if not already started, and set to Automatic if it shows Disabled). Then scroll to "Print Spooler" and verify it shows "Started" (start it if not already started, and set to Automatic if it shows Disabled).
