Click the Start button, in the search box type: services press enter.
In Services under name scroll down until you find "print spooler"
Right click on Print Spooler and make sure it's started. Also make sure Startup Type is Automatic.

Hi, if following Coolburn's advice does not succeed, then go to start, search and type:- cmd right click on the returned cmd.exe and select "run as administrator" at the prompt copy paste the below cmd's in red:-

net start > 0 & notepad 0

press enter, please post the notepad outcome here.

Also still at cmd prompt (as admin) copy paste:-

echo > 0 & sc qc spooler >> 0 & sc queryex spooler>> 0 & echo >> 0 & notepad 0

Press enter, please post the notepad outcome here (copy paste).

EDIT:- may as well see the registry while where at it:-

At cmd as admin (as shown) copy paste all below in red:-

reg query "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Spooler" > 0 & notepad 0

Press enter, please copy paste the notepad outcome here.
