    Alright so this is my fault.
    I try to print, and I get:
    An error message saying I need to install a new printer, and then it says press ok to install it now so I do.

    Then an error comes up saying I can't do that because the printer spool service is not running.

    Earlier today I accidentally deleted a printer property, and perhaps the spooling service in environment variables.

    How do I put it back in/ Fix the problem?

    Is this the right forum? I was reading for about a half an hour to find the right forum. Hope this causes no problems.
    Thanks, peeps!

    click Start> right click "my Computer">click manage...in computer management select services and applications then services...look in the list for print spooler and start it or restart it...see if that helps.
