    When I click "Add a Printer" it says "Operation could not be completed". I've tried restarting the printer spooling service, and i also tried the Microsoft support located at http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;324757

    After completing those steps it no longer gave me a memory error on starting computer and saying illegaln operation every so often about print spooler, however it still says "operation could not be completed."

    Please Help,
