    I am facing Print Spooler Services Stopped in Windows 7 and i'v done all the possibilities with win 7 like manually starts services many times but it again gets stopped.

    clean its registry but not resolved
    applying some patches but not resolved
    install all updates of win 7 but not resolved
    delete SPOOLER folder;s file but not resolved

    It always prompting me the popup windows " No printer found or print spooler services not running"

    please provide me the proper solution or patch which can be fix this issue.

    You didn't say what brand of printer. I can only tell you what I did when I bought
    Windows 7. HP computer, 64 bit.

    Connect your printer to your computer.
    Don't turn your printer on until your on the Internet. (It may start a search on it's own)
    If it doesn't start a search for the drivers.
    Go to the Control Panel - Devices and Printers -
    Right click the printer Icon that needs a driver and left click Trouble Shooter. Click on Apply this fix.
    Once the search has started do nothing until the driver is Installed.
    If you have dial-up it may take several tries.
    This worked for my HP 3 in 1 printer, copier and
    This also worked on my 2 Canon printers.
