I deleted too much from my PC, and now I can't get my printer to work. When I go to Administrative Tools-Services-Print Spooler, the spooler is disabled. If I try to enable it, I receive a MMC message: "Could not start the printer spooler service on local coomputer. Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start.

Can somebody help?

Try completley re-install your printer?
Unplug it, uninstall al the drivers and stuff and then re-install it like you did when you first got the printer

JDS,

Doing a little house cleaning?

Try either doing a Repair, or re-install Windows over the top of your current slim'ed down version.

You really don't know yet what else you removed that is going to bite you later! :eek:

If you were playing around with disabling servies you may want to try goin through this and see which services are on by defualt: http://www.blackviper.com/WinXP/servicecfg.htm

There should also be some registry scripts to automatically restore the defualts.

Reinstalling the printer driver may help as well.
