I have a Lexmark X73 and it recently started giving me spooler service errors. I have no idea what could be causing this, and I have tried everything I could think of to remedy this.

I run task manager and run the spoolsv.exe on its own, but it crashes within seconds.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks for your time.

If you go to Start > Run, type in services.msc and a list of services will be presented. Go down to Print Spooler , double (left) click it and check that it's set to automatic. I'm assuming the service is already started as the process is running, however if it's not then click Start.
