    :( not working. i have been trying to get rid of a lot of malware & now my printer has issues. i cannot re-install it b/c i get the error "spooler service is stopped." I have tried to go through administrative tools--> component services --> doesnt work.

    i have tried "add a printer" and it wont let me.

    it just keeps saying "spooler service is not stopped"

    i checked and the file C:/WINDOWS/system32/spoolsv.exe exists on my computer.

    Please help if you can.

    it might be advisable to delete the spool server files and then try a reinstall.
