    I have two printers here and I can't get either of them to work on my computer. I'm using Windows XP and I always get an error message saying the Print Spooler system isn't working properly. I went to Computer Management>services and clicked on Print Spooler and started it up again. After about 2 minutes I get an error message saying that the print spooler system is shutting down. I really need to get one of the printers working so what do I do?
