I recently upgraded from Windows98 to Windows 2000 and after downloading all the appropriate drivers had my printer and fax cards working. After installing Bitware (I believe this was the point when this started) I got an error message "An error has ocurred with spoolsv.exe and will be shut down by Windows you will need to restart the program." This message occasionally repeats itself. Furthermore, Windows shut down ALL of my printers (all of my printer profiles were removed!) Now, when I try to reinstall a printer or printer driver for my fax cards I get a message "Printer operation cannot continue due to lack of resources. The print subsystem is unavailable."

Please advise!

and yes it worked. I am, however, now looking for a good alternative to Bitware to act as an answering machine and fax. Any suggestions. Bitware served me well on 98.
