    Hi, I'm needing some help with installing a new printer...I have a Canon Pixma MP 280 and can't seem to get the software and drivers installed....I'm getting "Processing cannot be continued because the Print Spooler service has been stopped". I have no idea what that even means let alone how to start looking for a fix! Any advice please???

    In case anyone else wants it...I just had to download and install the latest driver from Canon and then plug the printer in and it all worked. I had the printer plugged in and switched on when I was installing the driver first time round and for some reason, that was stopping the Print Spooler Service running...whatever that means :) Sorry if I wasted time on this one...
