I've read that the fix is to go to administrative tools, and click on "Print Spooler, or Spooler" The problem is my computer doenst have a Spool, printer, printer spooler file.. What can i do ?? Please help.

    you obviously didn't try very hard doing your "research"

    start > run > services.msc <enter> scroll down to print spooler.

    Please re-read my post. I said my computer doesn't have a
    "print spooler" option. Its not on my computer... It doesn't exist on the services page.

    You obviously didn't read my post before criticized me.

    I don't think anyone has heard of a computer that doesn't list print spooler in services. It you are sure that it's not listed, then I would have to advise that you backup all your personal data, and reinstall windows.

    I read it just fine. You said you went to administrative tools and looked for it there. You have to go to administrative tools and then services. If you did that you left that out of your post, which is a critical piece of information.
